Hello! My name is Rabbi Sarah Tasman and I am a dynamic and creative educator, spiritual leader and life cycle officiant based in the greater Washington, DC area. I am the founder of the Tasman Center for Jewish Creativity which offers in-person and online resources for those seeking Jewish learning, community classes & gatherings, and private spiritual coaching and rabbinic support. I lead Jewish mindfulness classes and monthly new moon workshops that incorporate creative expression and ritual. I love making Judaism creative, personalized and accessible.
I bring warmth, a rich knowledge of tradition and inclusivity to meet couples, families, and students wherever they are in order to create a meaningful experience.Previously, I was the InterfaithFamily/DC (now 18Doors.org) director, serving the needs of interfaith couples and families throughout Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC.
I was ordained by the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in 2012 and also hold a master of Jewish Education and a certificate of Non-Profit Management. I am a Rabbis Without Borders Fellow and member of the Kenissa: Communities of Meaning Network
