Rabbi Molly Plotnik joined PTS as Director of Education in the summer of 2015. She brings her love of music and passion for Jewish education to our community.
Rabbi Plotnik received her M.A. in Jewish Education from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's Rhea Hirsch School of Education and was recently ordained by HUC-JIR in Los Angeles in 2015.
During her time at HUC-JIR, Rabbi Plotnik authored her curriculum guide for adult education entitled "Intentional Living: Refining Your Beliefs and Realigning Your Actions," and her rabbinic thesis entitled "Implementing Green Theology in Reform Synagogues."
While in Rabbinical school, Rabbi Plotnik further pursued her interest in the intersection of Judaism and the environment by spending several summers working for Adamah Adventures, a Jewish outdoor adventure camp based out of Atlanta.
