Announcement by the Board of Directors

May 1st, 2019

Beth Shalom Congregants,

The Board of Directors of Edmonton Beth Shalom Synagogue is pleased to announce that Rabbi Steven Schwarzman will be joining Beth Shalom Synagogue as our Rabbi effective July first, 2019.

Rabbi Schwarzman comes to Beth Shalom from Congregation Beth El in Montreal, Quebec. Prior to serving as the Rabbi at Beth El he served congregations in Toronto, Massachusetts, and Maine. The Rabbi and his wife have lived in Israel, the United States and Eastern Canada.

The Rabbi was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York, and has degrees in Jewish Studies from the University of Jerusalem, and the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of four books and numerous articles.

He and his wife Bettina are very excited to be moving to western Canada and becoming a part of our Beth Shalom kehillah. With the Rabbi’s knowledge, leadership, energy, and positive outlook we look forward to Rabbi Schwarzman guiding our congregation forward in an environment where each and every congregant has the opportunity to build a meaningful Jewish life through prayer, learning, and Tikkun Olum.

We wish everyone who is a part of Beth Shalom and in particular Rabbi Steven Schwarzman and Bettina a hearty Mazel Tov as we begin our new journey together. May we go from strength to strength.


Lana Black, President
