Associate Rabbi Jill Perlman

Rabbi Jill Perlman is a Massachusetts native and a proud member of Red Sox Nation. She grew up in Worcester, MA and attended Brandeis University, both as an undergraduate and as a graduate student. She received her B.A. in English and American Literature and completed programs in Education and Women’s Studies. She then went on to pursue a three-year joint-Master’s degree program in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and Jewish Communal Service with a concentration in Jewish Education. Rabbi Perlman received a M.A. in Hebrew Literature in 2009 and ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York City in 2010, where she received several academic prizes and was the recipient of the Bonnie and Daniel Tisch Fellowship, a prestigious fellowship meant to foster future transformational rabbinical leaders in the Reform movement.

As a student rabbi, she served the Reform Temple of Forest Hills, NY; Temple Beth El of Chappaqua, NY, and Temple Tikvah of New Hyde Park, NY and completed extensive training in pastoral counseling at Massachusetts General Hospital. Rabbi Perlman comes to Temple Isaiah with significant experience in youth work and family education. Before coming to Temple Isaiah, Rabbi Perlman consulted with Synagogue 3000 on best practices for reaching, exciting, and empowering our next generation of Jews.

Rabbi Perlman is excited about building relationships with our families and sharing her love of Torah and Judaism with the entire Isaiah community.

Rabbi Perlman lives in Waltham with her husband, Jeff, an attorney (and also a Massachusetts native; he grew up in nearby Sudbury) and their children.
