Rabbi Emily Lipof, Rabbi Emerita

is the first woman in the United States to be named Senior Rabbi of a major congregation. In 1988, she was called to our pulpit, where she has been instrumental in revitalizing our congregation with her innovative programs, spirituality, and inclusiveness. An educator at heart, Rabbi Lipof founded the Temple Shalom Nursery School in Newton. She served as principal of the High School for Jewish Studies and was the director and teacher of an adult education workshop at Brandeis University.

The Jewish community of Greater Boston and beyond is well aware of Rabbi Lipof’s uniqueness and accomplishments: She has been honored by Combined Jewish Philanthropies with their annual Rabbinic Award, by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev with their Outstanding Service Award, and by Israel Bonds National Board, which chose her as one of 50 rabbis in the United States to receive the coveted Golden Shofar Award.
