Alumni Temple Emanu-El Welcomes Hebrew College Graduate as New Spiritual Leader
Temple Emanu-El of Haverhill, MA is set to welcome Rabbi Ashira Stevens, of the most recent class of Hebrew College ordainees, as its new rabbi. Stevens has served as a rabbinical intern and succeeds Cantor Vera Broekhuysen `16, another Hebrew College, as the temple’s spiritual leader.
We are so excited to have Rabbi Stevens back in our community…Rabbi Stevens first came to Temple Emanu-El as an intern four years ago. Since then, she has continued her engagement and strengthened her bond with our community. Rabbi Stevens’ rich background—from her wealth of educational experience to her ability to reach those of various levels of observance—makes her the perfect choice to lead our congregation.
