The temple has a special service planned for 10 a.m. Sunday with Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld as the guest speaker. Anisfeld served as a mentor to Adler while she studied at Hebrew College in Newton, where Anisfeld is now the president elect, according to the temple.
Adler graduated from Hebrew College in 2008 — it was the college’s first graduating class. After she was ordained, Adler served as an assistant rabbi for a Hamden, Connecticut, congregation. She came to Beverly in 2011, when she was chosen from a pool of nearly 70 candidates to succeed Rabbi Stephen Rubenstein.
Since then, Adler has become increasingly involved in the area community. She serves on the city’s Human Rights Committee and helps lead the Beverly Multifaith Coalition. She’s on the board of the Essex County Community Organization and is president of the North Shore Rabbis and Cantors Association.
