212.677.8090 ext. 23 /

Since becoming T&V’s head Rabbi in 1991, Rabbi Sebert has engaged and inspired his congregants to climb the ladder of Jewish commitment. He inspires through his warm personality and non-judgmental style as well as the power of his intellect and his creative approach to the study and practice of modern Conservative Judaism.

A rock and roll drummer, Rabbi Sebert is beloved by the community as someone who never takes himself too seriously, but takes people very seriously. He has the rare capacity to make each person feel special and validated, and to help and inspire them to find their own way to a more committed Jewish life, sometimes in small, yet important steps.

A featured singer at Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall, Mann Auditorium in Israel, Carnegie Hall, and at the White House, she uses her beautiful voice to transport our members and to inspire them to sing out together in prayer in ever more active and participatory services.
