Rabbi Cheryl Jacobs, Director of Community Outreach
Rabbi Cheryl Jacobs is committed to making spirituality accessible to all “spiritual seekers”. Having served as a congregational rabbi for many years, Rabbi Cheryl has a great deal of experience connecting with individuals and families. She has also spent much of her career working with those who are not connected with a synagogue. She strongly believes that in the 21st century, anyone who wants to connect to Judaism should have meaningful opportunities to do so.

She attended University of Miami and obtained both her bachelor’s and master’s degree in Special Education. Prior to working at Ramat Shalom she was a teacher at Scheck Hillel Community School and a researcher at University of Miami, focusing on students with diverse learning needs.
