Rabbi Sara Abrams begins August 1 as the new CBI Rabbi !
We are very pleased to welcome Rabbi Sara Abrams as our congregation’s rabbi. The position will be three-quarter time, starting on August 1, 2016.
Rabbi Sara joins CBI from Westchester, New York, as Rabbi and spiritual leader. Rabbi Sara brings her passion for teaching children and families. She will provide pastoral care, and spiritual growth for CBI and will cultivate opportunities for social action in the greater Chico community.
Rabbi Sara holds a Master’s in Hebrew Letters and ordination from Hebrew Union College, a Master of Arts in Religious Studies, and a Master of Science in Elementary Education. She has worked as a hospital chaplain, and is a teacher of all ages.
Rabbi Sara practices and instructs others in yoga, kabbalistic meditation, and has written her own prayers, poetry, and music–all with the purpose of uplifting the spirit and elevating the soul. She is deeply committed to a philosophy that transcends humanmade boundaries and spreads the message of achdut (unity) and chesed (lovingkindness).
We welcomed Rabbi Sara at her first Shabbat Service on Friday, August 5! Thanks to all who participated and made this a memorable event.
