Today is April 20, 2019 -
As many of you already know, Rabbi Mark Fasman officially joined Temple Emanu-El as our rabbi on August 4, 2015! He began leading Shabbat services on August 7.
Ordained from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles, Rabbi Fasman and his wife, Alice, come to us from Temple Sha’are Zedek in St. Louis, MO. He wrote a siddur for Friday night services that helps people with limited Hebrew reading skills understand and feel included.
Prior to becoming a rabbi, Rabbi Fasman was a professor of music at Minnesota State University and earned a doctorate in music from Indiana University.
