Instructor – Rabbi Steve Lebow Rabbi Lebow became the first full-time spiritual leader of Temple Kol Emeth when he moved to Marietta in the summer of 1986. Following the tradition of TKE as a “Big Tent” congregation Rabbi Lebow welcomed congregants of all different backgrounds, from interfaith couples, to lifelong Reform Jews, to members who had grown up in Conservative congregations who were looking for a Reform congregation open to traditional practices. At the conclusion of Rabbi Lebow’s first year he “shepherded” TKE to become a formal member of the UAHC/Union of Reform Judaism, in the summer of 1987. “Being the Rabbi of TKE for three decades has been the honor of my life,” he says. “But being the husband of Madeline and the father of Shira and Julia… those are things that mean the most to me.” Rabbi Lebow continues to focus on growing and sustaining TKE into the next decade.
