Rabbi Lapidus was raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After completing her undergraduate studies in science from Pennsylvania State University, she decided to pursue a career in the rabbinate. Here at The Temple, Rabbi Lapidus draws on her experiences as the child of an interfaith family in providing opportunities for people of all backgrounds to feel more welcome and involved in the congregation through the Leven Family Jewish Identity Institute and Temple Mosaic. 

Rabbi Lapidus is married to Rabbi Micah Lapidus, who is the Director of Judaic and Hebrew Studies at The Alfred and Adele Davis Academy, as well as The Temple's composer-in-residence. They have two children, Hadara and Caleb.
