Rabbi Aimee Gerace, our new Louis B. Silver Religious School Education Director begins her new journey with PJTC in July 2017. 

Rabbi Aimee GeraceRabbi Aimee Gerace was awarded an exclusive position in 2011 into the HUC-JIR Mandel Fellowship Program.  This prestigious opportunity exemplified Aimee’s qualities, understandings, and competencies to inspire congregational communities, fostering the social reality that transcends denominational and geographical boundaries.

Named the Elizabeth and Fritz Krauss Outstanding Student in Jewish Studies, Rabbi Gerace received her BA in Jewish Studies and Spanish Language from Tulane University in New Orleans.  She began working extensively with Jewish youth in Los Angeles as an early childhood educator and youth advisor, before going on to receive her MA in Jewish Education from Hebrew Union College Los Angeles in 2011. Aimee first joined Temple Isaiah in 2012 as a rabbinic intern, and then officially joined the education team after ordination.  This is where she successfully began to reshape the religious school and further inspire students and teachers and is now the Senior Director of Youth and Family Education.

In 2013 Rabbi Gerace was ordained at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles.  She now shares her vision on a daily basis in her role as Rabbi-Educator at Temple Isaiah, creating and facilitating a well-rounded and multi-vocal approach to Israel and education within Temple Isaiah’s Religious School.  Her passion for learning and deep knowledge of Jewish history gracefully elevates her ability to share her vision with others.  She is an American Jewish University Teaching Israel Fellow alumna, a member of the Mandel Leadership Fellowship, a mentor and tutor to Bar/Bat Mitzvah students, and a leader on domestic and international educational student trips.

A native of the San Fernando Valley, Rabbi Gerace has made Los Angeles her home along with her husband, Marco, their two cats, and their newest addition, Carson.  When she’s not questioning and challenging the norms and objectives in Jewish education, she finds great pleasure in her kitchen seasoning chili with hot sauce, or going on long walks with her family.
