Rabbi Margo Hughes-Robinson

Rabbi Margo Hughes-Robinson is so excited and grateful to be joining Beth El for the High Holidays! Based in Brooklyn, she serves as the New York Rabbinic Organizer at T’ruah: the Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, as well as the New York Ruach Avodah faculty for Avodah: the Jewish Services Corps.

Rabbi Hughes-Robinson received her rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2021, where she also earned an MA in Midrash. A New Yorker by birth, she grew up in communities all over the United States before attending Clark University, where she graduated with degrees in Theatre and in Jewish Studies.

 Margo is also a proud alumna of the Conservative Yeshiva Lishma Fellowship and the Hartman Rabbinic Student Seminar. While studying at JTS, she completed a two-year tenure as a Marshall T. Meyer Rabbinic Fellow at B’nai Jeshurun in New York, where she developed new programming for multifaith and multi-heritage families, and oversaw the conversion to Judaism program. Additionally, she served for two years at the Program Coordinator at the Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue, and sat on the Faith in Beijing working group and consulted for the Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations. Her writing has been featured on Sefaria, 18Doors, Hey Alma, and Zeramim Journal.

She and her wife Lily and their son Simcha cannot wait to celebrate with the Beth El Community!

Choosing…

where to worship, learn and celebrate is a big decision.  There’s no better way to learn more about us than joining us, commitment-free, for a Friday night Shabbat worship, we also have times when we share dinner before services and our vibrant and enthusiastic Torah studies twice a month or another upcoming event.

Sacred Times – Sacred Words

Here, we collect some of the inspiring Divrei Torah from Rabbi Jesse Nagelberg and other members of the Beth El Community.

Worship with us

We are a small congregation and our services are co-led by three lay members who envigorate us. Monthly we are joined by our dynamic student rabbi. We are so fortunate to have committed volunteers who share their expertise in chanting Torah and co-leading services. We welcome participation on all levels – singing, chanting, discussing, and challenging ideas presented at Torah Study.  We welcome Interfaith families and congregants of all backgrounds and ages.

GIVING TO BETH EL

Beth El relies on the generosity of the community. There are many ways to participate and many ways to give.
