Meet the Rabbi


Rabbi Drorah Setel has been Temple Emanu-El’s spiritual leader since August, 2015. She has an extensive educational background, having studied at Leo Baeck College in London, Harvard University Divinity School, where she earned a master’s degree in theological studies, the State University of New York at Buffalo Law School, Swarthmore College, and Yale University, where she is working on her Ph.D. dissertation. She loves teaching, and offers a variety of courses through Temple Emanu-El, including ones on Mussar and Introduction to Judaism.

Rabbi Setel previously was rabbi at Temple Beth El in Niagara Falls, NY, where she served for nine years. She has also worked with congregations in Seattle, WA; Woodinville, WA; and Sudbury, MA. We are very happy that she is now with us at Temple Emanu-El!
