The inspiring story of Rabbi Kliel Rose

Rabbi’s message for the High Holy Days 5779

A special message from Rabbi Kliel Rose

We are pleased to announce that Rabbi Kliel Rose will be joining Congregation Etz Chayim as the Senior Rabbi effective August 7, 2018.

With over 14 years of experience as a successful pulpit Rabbi and with an outstanding reputation as an innovative, inspiring leader, we are honoured that Rabbi Kliel (as he prefers to be known as) has chosen our congregation.

Kliel earned a BA in Judaic studies from Gratz College, in Philadelphia, after which he studied at the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS). As a student, Kliel served a number of congregations in New York and one community in London, England, under the auspices of Masorati Olami.

As a senior rabbinical student, Kliel received the prestigious Rabbi Marshal T. Meyer Rabbinic Fellowship at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun in New York. He was ordained in 2004.

In 2014, Kliel was given the Rabbinical Human Rights Hero award by T’ruah: the rabbinic call for justice. Kliel was recognized for his involvement in interfaith justice work.

With his leadership, energy, and enthusiasm, we look forward to Rabbi Kliel moving our congregation in a positive direction and together with our dynamic Cantor Tracy Kasner Greaves, continue to build an environment where we can all find meaning in Jewish life through prayer, learning and Tikkun Olam.
