Hiring of Rabbi Brodie
Temple Beth Sholom of the East Valley is pleased to announce that Rabbi Herschel “Brodie” Aberson will join the TBSEV community as Rabbi beginning July 15, 2019. Rabbi Aberson, who prefers to be addressed as ‘Rabbi Brodie’, received his ordination from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies. His degrees include an MA in Middle Eastern Studies from Ben Gurion University of the Negev and a Certificate in Education from the American Jewish University. He also has a BA in Anthropology from Muhlenberg College.
Rabbi Brodie’s driving goals are to connect Jews to their traditions, their texts, and to each other. He believes, “By building stronger relationships with each other and our traditions we can build even better communities.” Rabbi Brodie believes Jewish education goes far beyond Bar or Bat Mitzvah. One of his goals is to instill a love of Judaism across the generations.
“I felt the love and warmth that this congregation is known for from the first moment I stepped onto the TBSEV campus,” Rabbi Brodie continued, “I am excited to become a part of it, and cherish the opportunity to dedicate my life and work to serving Temple Beth Sholom of the East Valley. I hope to make a positive impact, and help guide the way towards another 70 years of Jewish life and learning in the East Valley.”
Bryan Cederbaum, President of Temple Beth Sholom of the East Valley commented, “As TBSEV enters its 70th anniversary year and looks forward to the future, the congregation is excited to welcome Rabbi Brodie aboard as the spiritual leader. His infectious warmth and passion is already energizing both our community and other Jewish community leaders in the East Valley.”
