Meet Our B'nai Amoona Klei Kodesh

Rabbi Jeffrey Abraham, Senior Rabbi 

With his unmatched enthusiasm, creative programming and experience, Rabbi Abraham is an expert on the changing needs of the Jewish community and engaging those seeking a new and deeper connection to Judaism.

Rabbi Abraham came to B’nai Amoona in 2020 after six years as Senior Rabbi at Congregation Agudas Achim in San Antonio, Texas. Rabbi Abraham was the first member of the clergy to be awarded San Antonio Business Journal’s prestigious recognition “40 Under 40.” He previously served as senior rabbi at Congregation Sons of Israel in Nyack, New York, right outside of Manhattan for three years where he received dozens of awards for his work in revitalizing and growing his synagogue. Rabbi Abraham was also a contestant on The American Bible Challenge game show with Jeff Foxworthy.

Rabbi Abraham earned his rabbinic ordination at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Previous to this, he received a Masters in Jewish Education as well as a double bachelor’s degree in Jewish Studies and Hebrew Letters with a minor in Political Science at the University of Judaism (now known as American Jewish University). He is trained as a community organizer with JOIN for Justice, is a Professional Affiliate with Big Tent Judaism and has worked on a number of Keruv initiatives to reach out to interfaith families.

Rabbi Abraham and his wife, Lauren (also a Master Jewish Educator), are committed to life-long Jewish learning and together with their three sons (Benny, Henry, and Joey) bring a fresh energy and vibrancy to the Jewish community.

Rabbi Abraham looks forward to connecting with everyone.  You can contact him at or 314-576-9990 x136.

Cantor Sharon Nathanson

Cantor Nathanson has served our Congregation since 2003. Born into a musical family and raised in St. Louis, she was afforded the unique opportunity to return to B’nai Amoona, her home congregation, as a member of the Klei Kodesh team. Utilizing the rich tradition of Jewish music, our Cantor reaches out to all segments of our population. She is active in teaching our students preschool through high school, as well as adults. Her degree in Music Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign coupled with her extensive background in liturgy and vocal performance combine to create services that are both beautiful and accessible for this singing congregation.

She can be reached at or 314-576-9990 x104.
