Rabbi Danielle Parmenter

Rabbi Danielle Parmenter has worked in the greater Philadelphia Jewish community for more than 15 years teaching Jews of every age from all walks of life. She was ordained in 2014 by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and holds a Master of Judaic Studies degree from Boston University where she focused on medieval Jewish philosophy. Rabbi Danielle worked for 5 years as the Rabbi of Congregational Learning at a local Conservative synagogue where she cultivated a vibrant young family community, religious school and teen program. Likewise, she served the community rabbinically — nurturing spirituality and a deepened connection to Torah, leading services, officiating life cycle events,  and offering a loving and pastoral presence. Danielle is a trained spiritual director and served three years on the board of A Way In a national Jewish Mindfulness organization. She lives in Gwynedd Valley with her husband Scott and two children Henry (13) and Annabel (9). The Parmenter household recently adopted a lively silver lab named Champion. In her free time Danielle enjoys exercising, meditating, catching up with friends, studying Torah, listening to podcasts of Oprah’s super soul conversations and of course watching episodes of Parks and Recreation (hence the name Champion!).
