Rabbi Stephanie Kramer is the Associate Rabbi at Congregation Shomrei Torah, a reform congregation in Santa Rosa, California. During the 2017 Northern California Wildfires, Rabbi Kramer led the entire Sonoma County Jewish community with grace and dedication, earning her the moniker the “Fire Rabbi”. During the devastating fires Rabbi Kramer organized resources to help families in need and turned the temple into an evacuation center, a day camp, and a place for comfort. She worked to find temporary housing for congregants and others in the community who lost their homes. Fittingly, Rabbi Kramer also works in a group supporting rabbis through trauma and natural disasters. Along with her daily pulpit responsibilities, Rabbi Kramer enjoys supporting the broader Jewish community through her work on a number of Boards and Committees including the Northern California Board of Rabbis Advisory Board, the IsraAID Global Rabbinical Council, the Sonoma County Jewish Leadership Council, and the Budget and Finance Committee for the Central Conference of American Rabbis and she is the Immediate past president of Sonoma Hillel. Ordained at the Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion, Rabbi Kramer holds a Masters Degree in Hebrew Letters from Hebrew Union College and a B. S. in Psychology from the University of Houston. As a fellow in the Shalom Hartman Rabbinic Leadership Initiative, Rabbi Kramer continues her intense studies in Jerusalem twice a year.
