Adam Rubin began work as the rabbi of Beth Tikvah Congregation in the summer of 2017. Before that he was assistant rabbi at Congregation Beth Shalom in Seattle. He was born and raised in Southern California. After working as a Jewish historian for over a decade, his passion for Jewish religious and communal life led him to leave academia to become a rabbi. Adam is married to Judith Schleyer; they have two children, Elior (7) and Na’amah (3). He loves film, theatre, and baseball (especially the Dodgers), is learning how to pronounce and spell words the Canadian way, and is a recovering political junkie.
Francie enjoys reading books, baking and spending time with her family. When she is not working in the office, you might find her being Mah Jong or going on vacation with her family.
Stacey has been cooking for the Jewish community for over 25 years! You might have had her delicious cookies and Caesar salad at both Camp Solomon Schechter or at Camp Miriam. When she is not in the kitchen, she is cheering on the Seahawks and the Canucks! You should come by the Shul for Kiddush and taste her signature dishes- they are to die for!
