Rabbi Nicole Guzik
Rabbi Nicole Guzik is Senior Rabbi at Sinai Temple. She has served as a rabbi at Sinai Temple for thirteen years and four years prior as Sinai Temple’s rabbinic intern. Her vision is to create multiple paths for Jewish engagement and avenues to deepen Jewish identity.
Rabbi Guzik focuses on innovative women’s programming through Sinai Temple Sisterhood, young family retention and recruitment, and supervises Beit Bracha, Sinai Temple’s mainstreamed religious school for children with special needs. She guided Sinai Temple Sisterhood’s inaugural March of the Living trip to Poland in 2017 and in 2019 led a joint Sinai Temple-Sinai Akiba Academy March of the Living journey.
An Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT), Rabbi Guzik launched the Sinai Temple Mental Health Center in August 2021 to address the mental and emotional health of the Sinai Temple community and beyond. The Sinai Temple Mental Health Center destigmatizes conversations around mental health and provides opportunities for members to address life’s challenges and obstacles together. With her AMFT, Rabbi Guzik provides premarital counseling to Sinai Temple members and offers pre-b’nai mitzvah sessions to students and parents to help process the emotional nature of the life cycle process.
She is married to Rabbi Erez Sherman. Together, they are the proud parents of daughter Annie and sons Zachary and Henry.
