Homegrown Rabbi Returns to Serve Local Congregation!
Rabbi Shoshana Nyer, a Cleveland native and graduate of Brush High School, will begin serving Suburban Temple-Kol Ami as Director of Lifelong Education on July 5. Since her ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2003, she has been serving as Associate Rabbi and Educator of Temple B’nai Shalom in Fairfax, Virginia. While there, she directed a religious school of 300 students, created engaging holiday programs and innovative youth initiatives, and developed a “reel theology” course, combining Jewish thought and pop culture.
"I am honored to have been offered the position of Director of Lifelong Learning at Suburban Temple-Kol Ami," Rabbi Nyer shares. "I see a community that is warm and welcoming and truly wants to learn and grow together. The fact that I get to return home is icing on the cake!" Shana returns to Cleveland with her husband Stephen and daughter Emily.
Suburban Temple-Kol Ami is an egalitarian and inclusive Reform Jewish community that welcomes Jewish, interfaith, LGBT and multiracial seniors, couples, singles, single parent and dual parent families.
