Catching up with Rabbi Bruce Dollin and the HEA

Rabbi Bruce Dollin is coming up on 17 years as the senior rabbi at the Hebrew Educational Alliance, serving 925 member families. Rabbi Dollin began his rabbinical studies at the University of Judaism, and received his rabbinical ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in NYC.

He attended the University of Santa Clara, receiving his undergraduate degree in psychology.

ALTHOUGH his congregation may be anything but small, Rabbi Bruce Dollin has always sought to create a community where every individual feels valued and encouraged to explore his or her Jewish connection on a personal level.
