Rabbi Jake Singer-Beilin's Corner

Rabbi Singer-Beilin previously served as associate rabbi of Old York Road Temple-Beth Am in Abington, PA, and as assistant rabbi and education director of Temple Chai in Phoenix, AZ.  Most recently he has been the Interim Jewish Life Coordinator and Judaic Studies Teacher at the Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation’s Capital. 

He earned a Master of Arts in Hebrew Letters and a Master of Arts in Jewish Education from the Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles, where he was ordained in 2011.  He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from the University of California, Davis.  His fiancée is Rabbi Rachel Ackerman, Senior Rabbi of Temple Shalom in Chevy Chase, MD. 

Rabbi Jake writes:  “I am excited for this opportunity to serve Bet Mishpachah as its rabbi, and to provide a spiritual home to members of the LGBTQ Jewish community, friends, and family members.  Throughout my rabbinate, the most profound blessing has been to form relationships with congregants and to be invited to share in their lives, loves, losses, and celebrations.  I cannot wait to form these relationships with the individuals who make up this sacred community and to dream with them about the holy work that we will do together.  I will strive to continue to create a space where we can pray, march, sing, learn, and embrace with Jewish tradition as our guide and inspiration.” 

Rabbi Singer-Beilin will be the fifth part-time rabbi to serve Bet Mishpachah.  Previous rabbis include Rabbi Emeritus Bob Saks, Rabbi Leila Berner, Rabbi Toby Manewith, and Rabbi Laurie Green.
