Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Meet Rabbi Erin Hirsh, Executive Director and Education Director

Rabbi Erin became OH's Education Director in the spring of 2021. She has an extensive history in congregational education- including having worked with Rabbi Alanna in multiple capacities over 20 years. Rabbi Erin’s leadership style, professional experiences and personality proved a great fit for OH. Although Or Hadash initially got to know Rabbi Erin as an educator, she has served as an executive administrator for the Reconstructionist movement and Gratz College. In May 2024, the congregation voted to also make Rabbi Erin our first Executive Director. As we have seen firsthand, Rabbis Erin and Alanna complement each other beautifully and this collaborative administrative structure will help Or Hadash benefit from each of their strengths.
