Rabbi Jamie Arnold

Rabbi Benjamin (Jamie) Arnold brings warmth, joy, scholarship, music, wisdom, a love of tradition, and a way with children to Jewish communal life. In addition to leading spirited worship services at CBE, Rabbi Jamie is actively involved in the religious school. He provides spiritual direction and pastoral counseling, leads a weekly class on Mussar (ethical-spiritual discipline) on Thursdays, and hosts a Friday morning music & meditation series called Aleph-Bet Soup for the Soul.
