Rabbi Eva Sax-Bolder
Rabbi Eva Sax-Bolder is delighted to serve as the Rabbi of the Shul of New York. She was recently ordained by ALEPH: the Alliance for Jewish Renewal, emphasizing Jewish spirituality. She is a fellow of CLAL’s trans-denominational Rabbis Without Borders, a select network of rabbis seeking to “share Torah in pluralistic, innovative ways grounded by a sense of service to all.” During rabbinical school, Rabbi Eva interned and then served as the Assistant Spiritual Leader at Temple Beth El in City Island.
Rabbi Eva is a longtime spiritual director (trained by Lev Shomea) serving individuals and groups to discern their relationship with the Divine. She is also a Hebrew chant leader at the JCC of Manhattan and throughout Westchester, trained in Kol Zimra (the two-year Jewish Chant Leadership Program founded by Rabbi Shefa Gold). Rabbi Eva has earned certificates as a Jewish Yoga Teacher, Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Teacher and Wise Eldering facilitator through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. She has also done extensive chaplaincy training in hospital, hospice and prison settings.
Rabbi Eva created Nishmat HaLev, offering learning, pastoral care, life-cycle events and ritual-crafts through a meaningful, creative Jewish connection to the Divine.
Prior to entering the rabbinate, Eva served as a speech and language pathologist in California and New York. She is a visual artist, currently focused on collage, textile arts and painting. She enjoys reading Jewish texts, cooking, every kind of ethnic music, dancing, gardening, traveling, adventures and a good joke. Eva and her husband, Larry, have two grown daughters, Amalia and Anessa.
Rabbi Eva is delighted to begin her tenure at the Shul of New York, and looks forward to sharing her unique approach to creating a vibrant, meaningful and open-hearted Judaism.
