Rabbi Orrin Krublit joined South Huntington Jewish Center on August 1, 2021. He was born in Florida, attended the American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, the University of Florida, and the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he received Ordination in 2017. He came to New York from Orlando, where he served as the Rabbi at the Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation.
Rabbi Krublit met his wife Meira Cohen, a Long Island native, while attending the Seminary. They fell in love over a shared passion for Judaism, Indian Food, and Comedy, and were married in St. Louis, where Rabbi Krublit was the Assistant Rabbi at Congregation B’nai Amoona. They have a one-year-old son, Asher, and all are thrilled to get to know the SHJC membership.
Rabbi Krublit believes that “the synagogue should be a place where you can find friendship, community, and inspiration. “Building and strengthening relationships and connections between one another transforms our synagogues into holy communities,” says Rabbi Krublit. “Our kehillot, congregations, are places where we can join together to celebrate the joys in our lives, and to find comfort and help whenever we need it.”
SHJC is very excited to introduce Rabbi Krublit to our congregation as his experience, love of Judaism and desire to adapt and grow with our membership makes him an excellent fit. May he go from strength.
