Rabbi Scott Perlo serves on the Rabbinic Cabinet at Avodah.
I left the waves of my beloved Pacific Ocean for Sixth & I. Since California is my home, you’ll find me returning to surf or dive any chance I get. My travels and experiences as a rabbi have been eclectic, off the wall, and have blessed me with satisfaction. I had the honor to be the first rabbi of the Professional Leaders Project and Moishe House, a founder of the Ma’or Beit Midrash and CreateHavdallah, rabbi of Adat Shalom in West L.A., and rabbinic intern at IKAR and Beit Warszawa in Warsaw, Poland. I received my undergraduate degree from University of Pennsylvania and my ordination from the Ziegler School at the American Jewish University in 2008. I write fairly often for the Huffington Post and deliver fresh takes on spirituality for our blog, Kosher Salt. My greatest love is to teach and learn with other fellow travelers; I’m constantly looking for spiritual partners, wherever they are to be found.
