Rabbi Harvey J. Winokur
Rabbi Winokur founded Temple Kehillat Chaim in 1982. Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island and in Buffalo, he received his B.A. at the SUNY at Buffalo, and his M.A. and Ordination at the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is a Facilitator/Seminar Director for Prepare-Enrich (www.prepare-enrich.com) a pre-marital/marital needs assessment organization. Rabbi Winokur is currently the only trained Jewish Spiritual Director in the State of Georgia (www.jewishspiritualdirection.com).
Rabbi Winokur thinks of himself as a teacher. He feels that it is important to break down the distance between the pulpit and the pew. He believes in the importance of our Kehillah being non-judgmental and inclusive.
In addition to his full time responsibilities at the Kehillah, he has served on the Board of the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta, The American Jewish Committee, The Interfaith Coalition of Metropolitan Atlanta and the Southeast Conference of Reform Rabbis.
Cantor Barbara G. Margulis
A native Atlantan, earned a Master of Music degree at the University of Maryland, and then continued her studies at the Hebrew Union College School of Sacred Music in New York City. She graduated and was invested as Cantor in 1985. Cantor Margulis believes that "music is intimately connected with prayer". She says that "throughout Jewish history, our people have expressed their deepest feelings via music. Music gives voice to the soul's passions and we encourage participation at the Kehillah".
In addition to her participation in our services, Cantor Margulis conducts our Adult and Junior Choirs, oversees our music program, tutors our B'nai Mitzvah students and teaches Hebrew. She is also on the Board of the American Conference of Cantors.
