It is with a great deal of excitement that I am writing this email.
I am absolutely thrilled that, on July 1, Rabbi Alexandra (Allie) Klein will be joining the TSTI staff. Throughout the search process we were consistently impressed by the caliber of the students approaching rabbinic ordination. Rabbi Klein was, however, far and away the rabbi we hoped to engage and we are gratified that she has accepted our offer.
A native of New Jersey, Rabbi Klein is a product of the Reform Movement and has extensive experience in Jewish Summer Camping, formal and informal education and much more. Her resume impressed the committee and the time we spent with her throughout the intensive interview process only served to solidify our first impressions. Our unanimous choice, Rabbi Klein immediately accepted our invitation.
We welcome Rabbi Klein and her husband Adam Seidman to the TSTI community and look forward to inviting you to a series of events throughout the summer so Rabbi Klein can meet her new temple family… and you her.
A huge thanks to the search committee for doing a fantastic job that has concluded in the most exciting of ways.
Rabbi Dan Cohen
