Rabbi Karen R. Perolman

Rabbi Karen R. Perolman has been serving Congregation B’nai Jeshurun in Short Hills, New Jersey since 2008 as rabbinic intern, assistant rabbi, and now associate rabbi. She credits her involvement with NFTY, URJ Camp Harlam, and the Maryland Hillel community with her desire to pursue the rabbinate, including a pivotal summer traveling with the NFTY in Israel program. Karen is a voracious reader (paper books only) which fuels her passion to understand the relationships between food, spirituality, politics, Judaism, feminism and social justice. She is in the current cohort of Clal’s Rabbis Without Borders Fellowship and is a monthly contributor to The Wisdom Daily. She’s on all things social @rabbikrp.
