Rabbi Scott Perlo

Scott left the waves of his beloved Pacific Ocean for Sixth & I. Since California is his home, you’ll find him returning to surf or dive any chance he gets. His travels and experiences as a rabbi have been eclectic, off the wall, and have blessed him with satisfaction. He had the honor to be the first rabbi of the Professional Leaders Project and Moishe House, a founder of the Ma’or Beit Midrash and CreateHavdallah, rabbi of Adat Shalom in West L.A., and rabbinic intern at IKAR and Beit Warszawa in Warsaw, Poland. He received his undergraduate degree from University of Pennsylvania and his ordination from the Ziegler School at the American Jewish University in 2008. He writes fairly often for the Huffington Post and delivers fresh takes on spirituality for the blog, Kosher Salt. His greatest love is to teach and learn with other fellow travelers; He is constantly looking for spiritual partners, wherever they are to be found. You’ll find his office door open, so when the mood for that intense conversation strikes, reach out!
