Biography

A graduate of University of Maryland, College Park (Government and Politics, Judaic Studies) and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), Erin served as one of BJ’s rabbis from 2018–2020. Prior to her time at BJ, Erin served for four years as Senior Engagement Officer at Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger, where she worked with rabbis, Jewish institutions, and youth to further the non-profit’s mission to end hunger in the United States and Israel.

Previously, Erin was Associate Rabbi at Temple Emanu-El in Westfield, NJ, where she spearheaded creative programming, including a volunteer-run Mitzvah Garden that supplied fresh produce to a local food pantry. She also worked extensively with families and children and introduced poetry and meditation into Shabbat services. Before Rabbinical school, Erin spent three years in Washington, D.C., first as a Legislative Assistant for the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and then as Legislative Associate for the National Council of Jewish Women. She’s also worked as a chaplain at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Rabbi Glazer relocated from Washington, D.C. with her husband, Rabbi Joseph Skloot, now a professor at HUC-JIR, and their two children.
