Rabbi Nitzan Stein Kokin has accepted the position of Senior Rabbi Beth El Congregation, 1118 W. Glendale Ave. Stein Kokin will begin her work as Beth El’s Rabbi and spiritual leader on Aug. 5, culminating with a celebration of Shabbat with her on the bima on Aug. 9.

Between now and then, the congregation will engage to facilitate a productive transition for Rabbi Stein Kokin to join the Beth El community, as well as the wider Phoenix Jewish and secular community.

A Rabbinic Installation is planned for later this year where the entire community will be invited to join in welcoming Stein Kokin and her family to Beth El Phoenix.
