I’m Rabbi Arielle and I come to the rabbinate with a background in Jewish education and teaching. I taught Hebrew language in elementary and pre-school and then decided to attend rabbinical school. I served as the Rabbinic Intern to Temple Emanu-El in Miami Beach for five years and loved every part of the rabbinate, from officiating at wedding ceremonies, Bnei mitzvah, funerals, teaching Hebrew school, mentoring conversion students, teaching Hebrew, running synagogue programs for young professionals and young families and so much more!
I began my rabbinical career through the Jewish Renewal movement where I learned to incorporate yoga and meditation into my Jewish spiritual practices and learned to see Judaism in a new light. I strive to make Judaism relevant and meaningful on a daily basis. I come from a traditional background and have a strong background in text study in Hebrew and English and am excited to share my passion and love of Judaism with you.
In my spare time, I enjoy making jewelry, practicing yoga, and taking long walks with my 2.5-year-old, Samara, my 3-month-old Amitai and my husband, Alejandro. Looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
