Rabbi Peg Kershenbaum has been serving B’nai Harim since August, 2008, just a few months after her Ordination from the Academy for Jewish Religion. Rabbi Peg’s strong background in Reform Judaism (she likes to say that her family has been Reform Jews since the denomination was invented back in the late 1800s) is complemented by her training at the Academy, the oldest pluralist seminary in our country.

Our rabbi brings warmth, compassion, humor and joy to our twice-a-month services. She has a sense of history, a profound love of language and a creative approach to education and ritual. She finds the people of B’nai Harim very, very dear. Rabbi Peg has befriended the students of the school and the teens as well. Congregants find her approachable and honestly interested in hearing their stories.

Trained as an Outreach Fellow by the URJ, Rabbi Peg wholeheartedly welcomes blended families of all kinds and loves to teach the Jewish and non-Jewish members how best to support their children in their Jewish journeys.

Rabbi Kershenbaum and her husband, Aaron (the Rebbitzer), are proud of the accomplishments of Congregation B’nai Harim and regularly marvel at the dedication of the membership. They’ve been heard boasting about the unbelievably high percentage of members who attend Shabbat and holiday services year round. They hope to serve the congregation for many years to come, to share simchas and lifecycle events and to watch the congregation grow and flourish.
