Rabbi Suri Krieger is equally at home with tradition, liberal theology, and innovation, blending them together to make creative yet authentic ritual and ceremonies. Prioritizing the importance of heritage brings our dynamic Jewish culture to life. Infusing some soulful neshamah into the mix brings spititual potency to the fore. These are some of the critical elements that characterize Rabbi Suri's presence on the bima, under the chuppah, in the classroom.
Rabbi Suri was ordained in 2008 at the pluralistic Academy for Jewish Religion (AJR), New York.
She is rabbi on the pulpit every month and holidays with Bnai Or of Boston, MA and Chavurah Beth Chai of Westchester, NY. She is professor in the classroom during the academic year, teaching Bible, Ethics and Judaism at Sacred Heart University. She is engaging participants in congregations and workshops throughout New England and Metropolitan New York year round. Dynamic, passionate and authentic are descriptives most often associated with her presence.
With a background in music and drama, Rabbi Suri is equally characterized by another set of descriptives -
Ruach (Spirit/Energy), Rhythm and Reverence!
"Suri has extraordinary people skills. She possesses true ahavat Israel. I have witnessed her drawing people out with her intriguing and thoughtful questions. She possesses a rare ruach hayyim/life spirit, which is infectious" Peninnah
"Your narrative as a self-described God-wrestler has touched me deeply. Your courage in being open about your approach to these concepts, these feelings, this commitment to let in this indefinable thing we call spiritual has given me some small courage to approach it in myself. " Bob Volin
'"We love your warmth, your teachings (always surprising us with information and thinking that challenged what we thought we knew) and your singing and music ~ especially how you call us together with music to start the services. Chavura BethChai
"Everyone was commenting on how intimate and inclusive it all felt. It would not have been the same if anyone else had led us in our special simcha!" Sue and Bonnie
