Rabbi Yael Dadoun has had a strong connection to her Jewish roots since she began teaching at her local synagogue right after becoming a Bat Mitzvah. Having been born into a Moroccan-Tunisian-Israeli family, she is excited about inviting people of all ages to explore their Jewish identity and journey with her.
Rabbi Dadoun has always remained closely connected to the Jewish community even while earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Theater from Hunter College in New York City. She has worked in the Jewish world for over ten years as a teacher, youth director and program developer in New York and served as cantorial soloist in a myriad of synagogues including Congregation Ohev Sholom in Harrisburg, PA for over five years.
After graduating with a Masters in Religious Education from the Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) in New York, Rabbi Dadoun served as the Director of Education/Principal of the Religious School at Temple Beth Sholom in Miami Beach, FL for three years. She was ordained from HUC-JIR in Cincinnati and joined The Temple Tifereth Israel in July, 2020.
Rabbi Dadoun is married to Joe Naroditsky who is the Director of Solar, HVAC, and Sustainability Programs at the Community Purchasing Alliance. They have one son, Micha.
