OUR HONOREES

Rabbi Michael Eisenstat is rabbi emeritus at Temple Beth Israel. He has served the Jewish community as an Air Force chaplain during the Vietnam War and as a rabbi of Temple B'nai Sholom in Huntsville; 23 years at Temple Judea in Coral Gables; and 11 years at Temple Beth Israel before retirement. He is a member of the Rabbinic Cabinet of UJA and has participated as a volunteer on an army base through the Volunteers for Israel Program. An ardent Zionist, he has been honored for his work on behalf of Israel and has been active in interfaith work, public service, and rabbinical councils. He is also founder of the Rabbi Michael B. Eisenstat Miniversity of Judaism which still operates today at TBI.

Both hailing from New York, Michael and his wife Nancy met when they were students at the University of Cincinnati where he was studying to become a rabbi and Nancy was majoring in art, and she went on to become an art education teacher. They were married in New York in 1963 and have 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren.

When they are not dedicating their time to the Temple, the Eisenstat’s enjoy traveling – their favorite places to visit thus far include Israel, Africa, and Bali. Rabbi is an avid golfer and Nancy enjoys spending time with her family and friends. They remain active and invaluable members to Temple Beth Israel.
