Please join us Sept 8-10 for a Shabbaton with our rabbi candidate, Rabbi SaraLeya Schley. She will lead Friday night services with several of our lay leaders and musicians, Saturday morning services with Baruch Morris on guitar, and a Sunday morning adult education class.
Rabbi SaraLeya was ordained in 2005 by the ALEPH Rabbinic Program.   Her rabbinic passions include plumbing the depth of Hebrew prayer, chanting Torah with interpretive translation, study of mystical texts, and officiating at rituals that mark life’s transitions, joys and difficulties.  She is committed to practicing and teaching tikkun ha-nefesh, the self- reflective refinement of our soul-traits that helps us become shining vessels for the Divine spark that enlivens us.
​Rabbi SaraLeya served Chochmat HaLev, Berkeley, CA, as rabbi 2008-2014, and she is currently Rabbi Emerita and lifetime member there. She is associated with the Rabbinic Leadership Initiative of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem.
Mother of three adult children, she also had a fulfilling career as a Gynecologic and Obstetric physician from 1977 until retirement in 2014.   She earned her B.S. in Psychology and M.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. She received a Master of Philosophy in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and a Master of Counseling from the University of Phoenix, Tucson campus. She is also certified in Interactive Guided Imagery™ and Soul Memory Discovery©.
