Senior Rabbi
Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim
Participates in 1 Session
Rabbi Stephanie Alexander Rabbi Alexander received her undergraduate degree, a B.S. in Psychology with honors in Jewish Studies, from Tulane University in New Orleans. She earned her ordination, as well as Masters degrees in Hebrew Literature and Religious Education, from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, studying on its campuses in Jerusalem, Cincinnati and New York. Throughout her training and practice as a rabbi and educator, Rabbi Alexander has sought out institutions that value creativity, inclusivity and spirituality – all of which brought her to Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, the oldest Reform synagogue in the United States. in 2010. Since that time, in partnership with KKBE’s lay leadership and amazing staff, the congregation has expanded its adult education offerings, made two trips to Israel, welcomed dynamic scholars and artists in residence, and deepened its involvement in social justice. Rabbi Alexander and KKBE were founding members of CAJM, the Charleston Area Justice Ministry, a faith-based social justice organization of 29 diverse congregations. She has served on its board since its inception, most recently as co-President. In 2016, she was awarded the John H. Gillison Award for Racial Healing by the South Carolina Christian Action Council, the first woman and the first Jew to receive the award.

But more important than anything, Rabbi Alexander is wife to Rabbi Aaron Sherman, who serves as a spiritual leader to Temple Beth El in Florence, SC; and mother to eight-year-old Eli, whose accomplishments will most assuredly far surpass hers someday.
