Rabbi Adrienne Rubin joined Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael as our Interim Rabbi when Rabbi Mark Mallach retired in June 2020. With her technological know-how and her experience in designing and leading services for many different constituencies, she led us through the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. She quickly connected with our members and was formally installed as our fourth permanent Rabbi in May 2022. Rabbi Rubin brings insightful lessons and Divrei Torah, as well as creative and engaging readings and services. As a trained opera singer, she leads beautiful music with Cantorial Soloist Ben Rosenbach during the year and Cantorial Soloist Lawrence Indik at High Holy Days. She keeps TBAY a vibrant and inclusive synagogue, by participating in the Springfield Interfaith Clergy Association, Keshet, Federation’s Rabbis’ Roundtable Steering Committee, and more — and by ensuring that all of our services are also online to allow broad participation from all the members of our community. She has an active blog here on our website and is always accessible to members at or her cell phone (available in the office).
