Rabbi Anna Burke


Rabbi Anna Burke is thrilled to serve the Wise Temple community, connecting with young families in her role leading YoFI and developing relationships with all adults in our congregation through member engagement. Rabbi Burke moved to Cincinnati in 2018 to attend Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, where she earned her M.A. in Jewish Education in 2021 and was ordained as a rabbi in May 2023. While completing her rabbinic studies, Rabbi Burke served as a rabbinic educator for Hillel at Miami University and held the position of Cincinnati Manager for the Jewish Fertility Foundation.

Before moving to Cincinnati, Rabbi Burke lived in Israel for two years, though she is a proud New Englander at heart. Born and raised in Rhode Island, she then received her B.A. in Jewish Studies at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. In her free time, Rabbi Burke loves spending time with her husband, Rand (the other Rabbi Burke), son, Mason, and adorable pup, Callie. Rabbi Burke can’t wait to meet you!
