As the spiritual leader of Beth Or in Miami, Rabbi Robyn Fisher shares her passion for making Judaism come alive and inspiring others to live life with more intention and meaning. Her teachings and spirited services help turn our ancient wisdom into today’s anecdote for combatting the incivility and disconnectedness that are plaguing our world.
In her commitment to create a strong and vibrant Jewish community, she has held numerous leadership roles within the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Temple Beth Am, and at the University of Miami Hillel. During her 10 years at UM Hillel, Rabbi Robyn served as Jewish Chaplain and Director of Student Engagement and Programming.
Rabbi Robyn’s love for the people and land of Israel prompted her to lead dozens of community missions and Birthright trips to Israel, and to help create stronger connections between the Jewish Diaspora and its Homeland.
Rabbi Robyn is equally committed to the Jewish tradition’s moral and prophetic call to the pursuit of justice and to the end of bigotry and discrimination. Promoting social justice and protecting vulnerable people in our local and global communities, continues to play a leading role in her personal and professional life. Building bridges in Miami’s interfaith community through PACT (People Acting in Community Together), as well as with My Neighbor’s Keeper (an interfaith collective made up of ten each of Rabbis, Imams, and Ministers), represent some of Rabbi Robyn’s current efforts to work with others in repairing the world.
Rabbi Robyn received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from American University and her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Miami School of Law. She was a Campus Fellow at the Sholom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem and received ordination from Mesifta Adas Wolkowisk Rabbinical Academy. She is a certified Prepare Enrich counselor for pre-marital and marriage counseling. She is a member of the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami and sits on the Board of Directors of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.
She is married to Randy Fisher and the proud mother of Evan, Ally and Kara who bring joy and love and their own sense of Judaism to the world.
