Rabbi Sandy Rosenstein has been serving as the spiritual leader of Temple Beth Sholom of Temecula for the past four years, and will continue to do so in the future.  She has been active in the Jewish Community in the Temecula Valley, since she moved into the area about 13 years ago, and prior to that in Los Angeles.  She brings to the community a special brand of religious understanding, providing a warm and welcoming presence to not only members of her congregation, but also to everyone in need of Jewish spiritual guidance throughout the entire Southwest Riverside area.

During her rabbinical training, Rabbi Sandy Rosenstein has not only studied the subjects that one would expect a rabbi to learn, but she has also dedicated herself to taking special classes relating to specific Chaplaincy matters regarding providing pastoral care.  She plans to use this additional training in her work as a rabbi in our community.

Rabbi Sandy Rosenstein also received her Master’s Degree in Rabbinic Studies.  As part of the program leading to her Master’s Degree, Rabbi Rosenstein wrote a thesis regarding the traditions and process surrounding death and dying according to Jewish Law and Tradition.

Rabbi Rosenstein’s specific goal as expressed in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal is

“Before I retire in 20 years, I intend to expand my congregation into a multi-generational kehillah where all Jewish and Jewish interfaith families feel welcome.”
