About Our Guest, Rabbi Amy R. Perlin, D.D.

Rabbi Perlin is the first female rabbi to start a congregation, founding Temple B’nai Shalom in Fairfax Station, Virginia, where she served for thirty-two years, until retiring in 2018 as the Founding Rabbi Emerita. She is a graduate of Princeton University and received her ordination from HUC-JIR in NY.

Rabbi Perlin is known as a master teacher, liturgist, counselor, spiritual advisor, rabbinic mentor, historian, and Reform Movement leader and innovator. She received commendations from every chaplain of the US military upon retirement for her lifetime of serving her career military congregants.  In 2012, she was honored by Jewish Women International as one of its “Women to Watch.”  In 2013, she was included in the Forward’s list of America’s 36 Most Inspiring Rabbis.  Rabbi Perlin’s portrait is one of 24 women rabbis featured in the museum exhibit “Holy Sparks,” in honor of the 50th anniversary of women in the rabbinate, which is now touring the country.

A committed philanthropist and lifelong Zionist, Rabbi Perlin is president of the Perlin Family Foundation, serves on the Board of Governors of HUC-JIR where she co-chairs the Israel Committee, and continues to mentor rabbis in the US and Israel. 

Rabbi Perlin has been married to her wonderful husband, Gary, for 47 years. They live bi-coastally in Virginia and Los Angeles to be close to their two sons, daughters-in-law, and seven grandchildren. Her preferred title these days is Savta!
