Meet Rabbi Kaiman

Rabbi Ari Kaiman

Rabbi Ari Kaiman loves just about everyone. He loves to sing and pray with his community. He loves a good conversation after a delicious Shabbat meal. He loves learning with children, teens, and adults. He cherishes every moment of life, the good and the hard.

Rabbi Kaiman found a deep sense of purpose and infinite inspiration from his teachers at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies. He received his Rabbinic ordination, with a concentration in Philosophy, studying closely with his Rabbis, Brad Artson and Elliot Dorff. His senior thesis is titled, “Why should a Jew (or anyone) read the Bible?”

Upon ordination, Rabbi Kaiman served as Assistant Rabbi at Congregation B’nai Amoona in St. Louis for five years. He was instrumental in founding Makor, a young adult group. He is also deeply proud of his partnership with the Miller Introduction to Judaism program through which he brought dozens of seekers to their home in Judaism.

Rabbi Kaiman was a member of the second cohort of Clergy Leadership Incubator and was in the the Atlanta Clergy Cohort of JOIN for Justice. He is currently applying lessons of the RA Cohort of the Pardes Mahloket Matters Fellowship with our partners at Intown Community Church and the One America Movement. In addition, Rabbi Kaiman is the Samuel T. Lachs Fellow of the LEAP Fellowship bringing together Academia and clergy.  He believes deeply in a vibrant future for our rapidly changing Jewish community. One of his great joys is the work of turning this belief into reality together with this community.

He finds great joy in his family. Rabbi Kaiman and his wife, Emily are graduates of the University of Florida. They have four children who love to play at shul and hope that your children come to join them.

Rabbi Kaiman values being accessible to the congregation and to all those seeking a deeper connection to Judaism. He can be reached at His direct line is 404-503-9910, and his cell phone is 404-913-6578.
