Our Clergy


Rabbi Kline
Rabbi Marc Kline
“Welcome to MRT, a congregation committed to opening our hearts to spiritual growth and our arms to each other. Having arrived in 2014, I am still amazed by the opportunities for relationship building that exist here! Come visit … take a look … let’s spend some time talking about how our worlds can enhance each other’s, and how our commitment to Torah, spirit, and engagement synergize here.”

Cantor Clissold has transformed our synagogue by introducing new music and programs, leading the congregation to participate with enthusiasm. Among many other things, she works with our sixth and seventh grade students to help prepare them to become b’nai mitzvah.
