Born and raised in Israel, Rabbi Peled served in the Israeli army as a combat medic, worked as the manager of a therapeutic zoo that served both Jewish and Muslim children, and ran a special afternoon enrichment program through the Ministry of Education. He was recently ordained as a rabbi at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. Married to Cantor Jennifer Duretz Peled. Rabbi Peled has twin 3-year old boys – Noam and Shai.
Rabbi Peled is creating a dynamic, hands-on curriculum for the school that is engaging the students and their parents both in and out of the classroom. His goal this year is to offer a full schedule of exciting activities that strengthen the religious school, reinvigorate the youth programs and create engaging High Holy Day programming for children and families.
My three children have grown as Jews because of the Rothman Religious School. They can lead parts of a Shabbat service, have learned Hebrew well, and know about the holidays and Jewish history. All the wonderful teachers at Temple Emanu-El… truly care about each student and give them individual attention. They make learning fun…!
