Rob Lennick
Rabbi Dr. Robert B. Lennick joined Congregation Etz Chaim as its rabbi in residence in 2014. Rabbi Rob most recently has been in private practice as a psychospiritual counselor, teacher of Hebrew Bible to non-Jewish clergy, consultant to pastors, rabbis and community leaders on community relations, teacher in interfaith settings, grant writer and is authoring two books.
He brings to Congregation Etz Chaim and the community 30-plus years of rabbinic and non-profit executive experience with extensive expertise in preaching, teaching, counseling, congregational development, community activism and interfaith affairs.
Following ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Rabbi Lennick was Assistant Rabbi at Congregation Emanuel in Denver. In 1987, assuming his own pulpit at Greenwich Reform Synagogue in Connecticut, Rabbi Lennick championed interfaith understanding while growing the congregation from 30 families residing in the basement of an Episcopal Church to over 400 families with a full facility and staff.
In 2000, "Rabbi Rob" was recruited as the first Jewish President of Religion in American Life (RIAL), a national interfaith umbrella organization to promote diversity and understanding among people of all faiths and to encourage Americans to attend the house of worship of their choice.
Realizing his deep love of congregational life he returned to the pulpit in 2003. Since then he served Temple Beth Am in Jupiter, Fla., and Congregation Keneseth Israel in Allentown, Pa., before moving forward to his current diverse professional involvements.
"Coming to Bentonville is very exciting. CEC is a wonderful congregational family and together I expect we will discover many exciting new possibilities for the congregation, its members and our role in the community," Rabbi Rob said. "This will be a great adventure. I am looking forward to meeting so many new people, deepening our spiritual awareness, expressing our pride in Judaism and the Jewish People, reaching out to our non-Jewish neighbors - and simply sharing the journey of living, the search for meaning, a closeness with God and peace of mind is such a broken world."
Rabbi Rob is married to Heidi Esner Lennick and will celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2015.
