Temple Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Laurence Aryeh Alpern
I am happy to announce my 38th year as a Rabbi. This year (2013) also marks my 28th anniversary as a Chaplain for the State of New York.
I have been in the Albany/Saratoga area of New York for over twenty years, serving Conservative congregations until I founded Temple Shabbat Shalom for interfaith couples. While doing post graduate Family Therapy training, studying the interfaith phenenomena I came to understand that couples from different religions deserved a Rabbi as a mentor.
I founded Temple Shabbat Shalom so that interfaith couples could have a Rabbi at their wedding and beyond. Needless to explain i needed to be independent for the launch. We then grew to be one of the larger Temple networks in the country.
Rabbi Alpern is much more than the best possible officiate.
We are here for you after you are married. The mission of Temple Shabbat Shalom is clearly explained in our newsletter.
If you have questions about the Temple, or are interested in having Rabbi Alpern participate in your wedding, please call (518) 893-0808 today.
