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. During her tenure here, she reshaped a small Hudson Valley community with an innovative program of outdoor services, 2nd day Rosh Hashana meditation, diverse learning opportunities., sunrise Shavuot, and a must join Confirmation Class.
She has a degree from Brandeis, NYU, Bekhal Leuanucja Institute for Jewish Spirituality and a Doctorate of Divinity from Hebrew Union College.
Cantor Robert Cohen
Cantor Cohen is steeped in Pete Seeger's belief that everyday can sing. He integrates that into services notable for their warmth, joy and participation. His own extraordinary journey has led him from a very well known folk group in the village to cantorial work in our community. You will also find Bob very active in the broad interfaith community in Kingston.
