You are invited to join Temple Kol Ami as we welcome Rabbi Matt Dreffin from the Institute of Southern Jewish Life to lead us in a Shabbaton weekend. A Florida native, Dreffin grew up at Camp Coleman, the Reform movement’s summer camp in Georgia. He attended Tulane University, earning a degree in studio arts and winning the award for most outstanding glass art student. After graduating in 2005, he had to leave for a few months because of Hurricane Katrina, then returned to New Orleans as assistant studio manager for Studio Inferno. Two years later, he went to Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in California, earning a Master’s in Hebrew Letters in 2010 and a Master’s in Jewish Education in 2011. He received his rabbinic ordination in May 2013. Currently he works at the ISJL both coordinating the ISJL education fellows and supplementing the rabbinic services offered to the small Jewish communities of the South. We are excited to meet Rabbi Dreffin and enjoy a full weekend of prayer, Torah study and cultural enrichment with him.
