Personal statement

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, D.C. 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, 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, D.C.

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
