  • Rabbi Mordecai Miller

    Rabbi Mordecai Miller developed a love of Torah learning from a young age, and it has lasted a lifetime. He has studied the TaNaCH (the Hebrew Bible) through a variety of lenses from Biblical comics to Biblical commentators, midrashim, and other Rabbinic sources. He finds the Bible and its associated works a source of ever-evolving inspiration - a spiritual light to illumine our paths. Since ordination in 1974, Rabbi Miller has served congregations in St. Paul MN, Canton OH, St. Louis MO, and is currently serving at Congregation Beth Ami in Santa Rosa CA. Rabbi Miller is the son of Rabbi Meyer Miller and Israeli artist Shulamith Wittenberg Miller. He and his wife Susan are the proud parents of two Jewish professionals, their daughter Morat Derech Sarah Miller, and their son Rabbi Micah Miller, as well as two beautiful grandchildren. Rabbi Miller teaches a daily online class on the weekly Torah portion which can be accessed on YouTube.
