Temple Emanuel’s Summer Services with Rabbi Cookie Olshein
Rabbi Olshein is a graduate of The George Washington University, of California Western School of Law, and Hebrew Union College – where she was a classmate of Rabbi Dean!
Rabbi Cookie Olshein will lead Shabbat morning services and Torah study throughout the summer at Temple Emanuel. She recently returned home to Las Vegas, where she will become the Rukin Rabbinic Interfaith Fellow for 18Doors.org, having previously served synagogues in West Palm Beach, Florida and Austin, Texas.
She has served on numerous boards and committees, and was an Interfaith New Clergy Fellow at the Chautauqua Institution. In addition, Rabbi Olshein loves to crochet (especially handmade kippot), and has spent vacations as
chaplain for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, and on several cruise ships.
A Georgia native, she brings joy, wit, and thoughtfulness to everything she does. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to pray with her and learn from her this summer!
