Our Spiritual Leaders
Rabbi Yael Romer
Our spiritual leader, Rabbi Yael Romer, is both passionate and dedicated to creating a Jewish community with the shared values of spirituality, social justice and ethical living. She has a degree from Brandeis, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and NYU. Rabbi Romer has led congregations in New Jersey, New Hampshire, Ontario, Canada and Israel. A dual citizen of the US and Israel, she served in the Galilee as a Pulpit Rabbi, where three of her five children were born.
Cantor Robert Cohen
Cantor Cohen is steeped in Pete Seeger’s belief that everyone can sing. From his own settings of well-known prayers to the Great American Songbook, he’s made music integral to the community here. Even though he never tires of pointing out composers that descended from cantors, Bob started out in a well-known folk group in the village. His own extraordinary journey brought him to the Hudson Valley where he also heads the Interfaith Council.
