Rabbi Nogah Marshall
Rabbi Marshall is no stranger to synagogue life. As the eldest of five children born to a rabbinic family with a father, brother and sister-in-law all rabbis, the synagogue has always been a home away from home. Prior to her arrival to Congregation Beth El, she served as the Educational Director at Har Zion Temple in Penn Valley, PA for 10 years and before that, as the Rabbi and Director of Education at Temple Emanu-El in Palm Beach, FL. Rabbi Marshall created and coordinated exciting programs, including a B’nai Mitzvah ceremony for adults with special needs for which she received the Volunteer of the Year Award from the JFCS of West Palm Beach as well as numerous Solomon Schechter Awards.
Rabbi Marshall has focused her work on children, families, and special needs individuals. She specializes in creative curriculum development, family & adult education, and building a passionate, inclusive, nurturing Jewish community. Her educational philosophy centers on experiential education coupled with religious observance, “One of my goals is to create a love of Judaism in my students so that they want to learn and incorporate it in their daily lives. This can be done by creating a solid foundation and a strong sense of community. It’s not just about education, but about community.”
Rabbi Marshall received her Bachelor of Arts cum laude in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies from Brandeis University, a Master’s Degree in Education from Harvard University, and was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary and earned a Master of Hebrew Letters. While attending Brandeis University, Rabbi Marshall was a member of the swim team, violinist in the Orchestra, as well as a member of the traveling Israeli dance troupe, B’yachad. She loves to travel and a has a strong passion and love for the State of Israel. And one of her hidden talents is juggling!
Rabbi Nogah Marshall lives with her husband Scott and their children, Karni, Eyden, Austin and Jaclyn.
