Senior Rabbi Search

Just after the Thanksgiving break, Senior Rabbi Alexis Berk informed President Teri Hunter that she has accepted a position and signed a contract as the next Senior Rabbi of Temple Solel, in Cardiff by the Sea (San Diego), California. Rabbi Berk will be leaving Touro Synagogue in June of 2019.

All transitions bring with them a measure of anxiety. The vibrancy and vitality of our beloved Touro Synagogue, however, is grounded in the constancy and resiliency of our community. Together we will ensure that we move from strength to strength during this current transition. Rabbi Silverman, Cantor Margolius, Kerry Tapia, our staff, Teri Hunter, and the Board of Trustees are here to anchor our congregation as we look toward transition. Touro Synagogue is a unique congregational community. Our past, current, and future vitality is a reflection of that uniqueness. We thrive because we are Touro Synagogue.
