Alan Abrams entered into the Rabbinate in 2002 and was ordained in 2008 in Jerusalem.
Sometimes called "The Networking Rabbi" for his past community outreach within the Phoenix/Scottsdale Networking world, Rabbi Abrams is available for all life cycle events, including weddings, hospital visitation, hospice care and end-of-life counseling and services, as well as conversion and Judaic study.
His Judaic studies range from Los Angeles to New York to Jerusalem, where Rabbi Abrams has learned with some of the highest regarded Rabbanim in the world. A inaugural Student at the first Conservative Day School in Los Angeles, studying under Rabbis Jacob Pressman and Stuart Kelman, he also trained under the wings of Rabbi Hillel Silverman and Chazzanim Carl Urstein (z"l) and Joseph Gole, he has literally learned from those who "wrote the book and the music" enjoyed by millions of Jews worldwide. The Urstein-Gole Shacharit has been the standard in Tefilah for over thirty years. His highlights in education have been having had the opportunity to study Talmud with R' Pesach Schindler in Jerusalem. His expertise, however, resides in Palliative Care Services, providing support and comfort in End-of-Life events.
