To see her, you would never suspect Sherre Hirsch is a rabbi. But once you speak to her and hear her abiding passion for her chosen vocation, you know she is special. One of very few female rabbis in the country – and only the 60th woman ordained in the Conservative movement – Rabbi Hirsch is so much more. And, best of all, she’s someone you instantly connect with and would like to invite to your house for coffee.
Rabbi Hirsch served one of the largest synagogues in the United States, Sinai Temple in Los Angeles, and during her eight-year tenure was instrumental in its growth from 900 to nearly 2,000 families. She is currently Spiritual Life Consultant for Canyon Ranch, offering guidance, inspiration, education and support to guests at both Tucson and Lenox resorts.
Rabbi Hirsch has recently ventured into electronic media to engage in discussions on spirituality – including serving as a Spiritual Commentator for The Today Show, conversing on interfaith issues on Naomi Judd’s weekly New Morning show on the Hallmark Channel, and as a featured guest on Thirty Good Minutes on PBS and The Tyra Banks Show. In addition to authoring many articles, Rabbi Hirsch’s first book, We Plan, God Laughs: 10 Steps To Finding Your Divine Path When Life Is Not Turning Out Like You Wanted (Doubleday), will be released in April 2008.
Rabbi Hirsch easily expresses her thoughts on spirituality and religion in an amicable and honest way, encouraging individual opinion and personal interpretation. Fluent in Hebrew and French, Rabbi Hirsch spends her precious free time practicing yoga, devouring fiction books, seriously playing tennis, shopping for shoes or dancing in the living room with her husband and three young children.
