Our Rabbi - Rabbi Shoshana Kaminsky

It  has been my pleasure and delight to have served as rabbi of Beit Shalom since 2006, when I migrated to Australia with my family from the United States.

As the rabbi of a small congregation, I pretty much do everything: I lead services for Shabbat and festivals and also mentor those who wish to do the same. I act as the first point of contact for those who are new to Adelaide and also to people who are considering conversion to Judaism. I act as principal for our Cheder, which meets on Sunday mornings for 2 1/2 exuberant hours. I visit people in the congregation and the larger Jewish community when called upon to do so. I tutor our b'nai mitzvah students in the year leading up to that big day. I act as an ambassador for the congregation and the Jewish community within Adelaide and beyond. I even sing in the choir and bake challah (along with many others) for Shabbat services! I feel greatly blessed to be part of such a close-knit and intentional Jewish community.

I believe we really do build meaningful Jewish connections here, and I consider that value to be at the centre of all I do. If you'd like to learn more, I'd be very happy to be in touch with you! Please feel free to email me at
