Our Rabbi - Emily Holtzman

Emily Holtzman, a native of Los Angeles, is entering her final two years

at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles.   Emily earned

degrees  in  Art  History  and  Judaic Studies  from  the  University  of

Oregon.  While  at  Oregon,  she  was  active  in  student  leadership at

Hillel as well  as her sorority.  Emily also holds MAs in  Jewish Studies

and Jewish Education with an emphasis in Experiential Education from

Hebrew College.

Throughout the past decade and a half, Emily has served as an educator administrator for both Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand Oaks as well as IKAR in Los Angeles. She has also been an educator in both the summer camp setting as well as in the religious school setting working with various camps and synagogues.

Emily is grateful to have had opportunities to learn with different types of organizations in the Jewish world. She is particularly proud of her experiences with The Shalom Hartman Institute, The iCenter, SVARA: a Traditionally Radical Yeshiva and Pardes. As an educator, Emily’s goal is to help strengthen and develop Jewish identity. With a passion for Jewish texts, and a focus on inclusion, Emily strives to create meaningful experiences for all Jews looking to connect in both their Jewish and secular lives.
