She will partner with Rabbi Kahan in the areas of worship, ritual, and lifecycle officiation; pastoral care; congregational programming; adult education; social justice and action; and more.

Rabbi Kahan notes, “Erin is a talented and experienced Jewish educator who will bring great creativity and excitement to our school. She is a passionate teacher of Torah and leader of prayer; her knowledge will surely uplift our Rockdale community. I am pleased to welcome her as my rabbinic partner and know she will serve our congregation with great wisdom and compassion.”
