Yom Rishon, 23 Shevat 5777

Senior Rabbi Scott B. Weiner

Rabbi WeinerWhen Rabbi Scott B. Weiner joined Temple Israel as Senior Rabbi in 2009, he brought with him a vision of active engagement with Judaism. “Judaism is not a spectator sport. One must engage Judaism in every way possible: from prayer to learning, from protest to visiting the sick, from visiting Israel regularly to feeding the homeless.” He believes that “Judaism is at its best when spirituality and action are paired.” Through our services, programs, classes, trips, social opportunities and activism, Rabbi Weiner hopes that everyone will find a special connection to our faith and traditions.
