The Temple boasts a large and dynamic team of clergy. Three pulpit rabbis are complemented by one additional rabbi who oversees specific Temple initiatives in education. Additionally, our renowned cantor directs the musical worship of The Temple, and of course we are blessed by the ongoing involvement of our rabbi emeritus, Alvin Sugarman.

Our clergy team can assist with all of the religious needs of our members. This includes life cycle events as well as Jewish education and pastoral care in times of illness or other need. They are also readily available as a resource of Jewish interpretation and explanation to the broader community.
