Rabbah Gila Caine
Born and raised in Jerusalem Rabbah Gila Caine graduated the Hebrew University with an M.A in Contemporary Judaism and received her rabbinic ordination at the HUC-JIR’s Israeli program in 2011. Her rabbinic thesis explored liturgical, spiritual, and ceremonial aspects of birth in Jewish tradition and contemporary practice. Rabbah Caine is actively involved in creating a Jewish response to the climate crisis, viewing this as a moment of spiritual reckoning for humanity and life on Earth.
She now serves as rabbi at Temple Beth Ora congregation in Edmonton, where she lives with her husband and children.
A transplanted American, I have been living in Edmonton for over four decades. My career has been spent in the not-for-profit sector with a particular emphasis on working within the Jewish community.
I am the proud mother of two sons, one who still calls Edmonton home and one who has returned to my roots in the States.
