Rabbi Lisa

We are delighted that Rabbi Lisa Bock is our rabbi here in beautiful Ojai. Rabbi Lisa is our spiritual leader, leading our Shabbat services twice each month and all High Holidays. She is a Mussar leader and facilitator with the Mussar Institute, leads life cycle ceremonies, provides spiritual care to patients in hospice and their families, teaches in various settings, and joined the team of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning Instructors in 2014.

But, most importantly, she is a warm, embracing presence with an open ear for all of our spiritual needs.
