Adam Cerino-Jones


Rabbi Adam Cerino-Jones joined JCNP on August 1st, 2022. He is continuing JCNP’s tradition of service and inclusiveness. Rabbi Adam believes that a synagogue should be a place where all Jews, Jew-adjacent loved ones, and those interested in Judaism should not only feel welcome and safe, but heard, respected, and valued. This means meeting people where they are and accompanying them on whatever the path of their life looks like. Rabbi Adam is a recent graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RCC) who has been involved with multiple congregations, Jewish Student Unions, and served as hospital chaplain in an oncology unit. He also has more than 15 years of musical training and won the Evelyn R. Mehlman Jewish Music Award for 2020-21. Email:
