Our Interim Rabbi: Rabbi Alyson Solomon


Rabbi Alyson Solomon is passionate about Judaism as a vibrant wisdom tradition and technology of meaning-making. To her, spirituality consists of asking questions that matter, then living courageously in line with what she hears.

Rabbi Solomon loves the diversity of congregational life and the creative joy that’s possible in its arms. She has served as a Street Rabbi in Venice, California and for communities in Santa Barbara, Cape Town and San Diego. She has also served as a Vice President at the the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, drafting and designing a citywide initiative, NuRoots, to engage Jews in their 20s & 30s.

A Phi Beta Kappa from Occidental College in Los Angeles, Rabbi Solomon received ordination from Hebrew College in Boston. She brings skills in action-based coaching, certification as a yoga instructor, and practice as a change-management consultant. Look for her Salty-Torah blogs at thisisRAS.com, a virtual community where she offers Courage Coaching and Sacred Making sessions.

Rabbi Alyson is a native of Portland, Oregon.  Her grandparents’ love of Israel and her parents’ sense of awe influenced her. She is a traveler, lover of text, swimming and soulful living.

Rabbi Alyson is thrilled to come to Beth Chayim Chadashim and looks forward to a stroll or a cup of tea to discuss what matters most to you.
