Rabbi Micah Caplan is the spiritual leader at Congregation Or Tzion and joins our Pardes students each Monday for a very successful, optional Lunch and Learn program. Additionally, he teaches a Middle School Jewish Studies Symposium. He has long-standing ties to Phoenix, having grown up here as a young child. Previously, Rabbi Caplan has served congregations in Florida and California where he introduced adult learning and youth programming. His vision is creating a place of learning, sharing and celebrating Jewish living together as a Kehillah Kedosha — a holy community. Rabbi Caplan and his wife Michelle are the proud parents of three children: Brianah, who is a Pardes graduate; Julia in eighth grade; and Avi in fourth grade.
