Rabbis Daria and Joshua Jacobs-VeldeThis summer, Oseh Shalom is transitioning from the committed, caring leadership of Rabbi Doug Heifetz to a married team Rabbis Daria and Josh Jacobs-Velde. Rabbis Daria and Josh continue Oseh’s strong spiritual, musical spirit while bringing their unique innovative approach to Judiasm.  During the transition, Rabbi Doug, Cantor Charlie Bernhardt and our Board of Trustees are here to support you in any way possible.
