Rabbi Caroline Sim was ordained in 2020 from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, on the historic Cincinnati campus. Before beginning her rabbinical studies, she earned a Graduate Certificate in Judaic Studies from the University of Cincinnati, and a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature, French Language, and European Studies from the Ohio State University. 
Rabbi Sim feels a deep commitment for bringing access to Judaism to all Jews, wherever they are located and whatever the size of their community. She has served as student rabbi for many congregations in varying regions, and also served the wider Cincinnati Jewish community through being an educator at Temple Sholom, and a lecture organizer at the Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati. When at home, Rabbi Sim enjoys pursuing her artistic interests, including painting and drawing. She is also in the process of becoming a Soferet, a female Hebrew Scribe.

High Holidays 5872 (2021) Schedule

As you probably know, we have decided to make our High Holidays Services virtual again this year. This decision was not taken lightly, but rather, is a consideration of the limitations of our small shul and the desire to preserve and protect the lives of our members in the midst of the recent COVID-19 Delta variant surge.
