After intensive study to receive his Masters of Arts in Jewish Studies from the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership, Rabbi Schesnol went on to be officially ordained by the International Institue for Secular Humanist Judaism this past April.
Although Rabbi Schesnol has been the spiritual leader of Or Adam Congregation for Humanistic Judaism for almost a decade, he is now their first Humanistic-ordained rabbi.
Rabbi Jeffrey Schesnol will be honored at an ordination celebration being held at the Arizona Jewish Historical Society/Cutler Plotikin Jewish Heritage Center Center on May 21 at 7pm. There will be Hors D’oevres, dessert, music, and dancing. This will be an in-person and virtual event, by invitation. Please contact for further information: 602-241-7870
