Rabbi Eve Rudin, Director of Education, Youth and Families

Prior to joining the Larchmont Temple team, Rabbi Eve Rudin served as the Director of the Congregational School at Park Avenue Synagogue in New York City, the Director of Camp Excellence and Advancement at the Foundation for Jewish Camp, and served as the Director of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) and the URJ Kutz Camp for Reform Jewish teens for the URJ (Union for Reform Judaism). A product of the Reform Jewish movement, Eve graduated with a BA in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies from Brandeis University and was awarded a Wexner Graduate Fellowship during her rabbinic studies at HUC-JIR where she was ordained in May 2000.

Her undergraduate and graduate thesis work focused upon youth movements and camping, and she has spoken and presented at numerous conferences on experiential Jewish education, camping, faith development and youth mentorship.

Rabbi Rudin is married to Rabbi Elliott Kleinman and, together, they have three children: Emma, Avi and Shira.

Rabbi Rudin can be reached by calling the Temple office or through her email at erudin@larchmonttemple.org.

Shoshy Levine, Youth Engagement and KESHER Program Coordinator

My name is Shoshy and I am a recent graduate of Barnard College, with a B.A. in physics. While in college, I did peer-to-peer tutoring, physics research, taught conflict resolution to local elementary school students, and was active in Hillel. I was especially involved in Kesher, the Reform community of the Columbia/Barnard Hillel, serving in leadership roles for multiple years. After spending so much time in Hillel, creating meaningful Jewish community, I made the leap to work on building Jewish community full-time and could not be more excited to work at Larchmont Temple and get to know the teens and the families here. 

Discovering my passion and love of Judaism through involvement in Jewish youth groups in high school, I’m especially excited to work with LarFTY. If it wasn’t for my experience in youth groups, I probably would not have been involved in Hillel or working at a synagogue. I am looking forward to working with high school students to create meaningful Jewish experiences that they can take with them the rest of their lives.

Shoshy can be reached at Slevine@larchmonttemple.org.
