Rabbi Ben Shull

Rabbi Ben Shull and his wife Dr. Stacy Lang came to Venice a little over twenty years ago when the rabbi served as the High Holy Days rabbi of the JCV. They were living in Tampa, Florida, at the time and the rabbi was working as the Executive Director of the Tampa Jewish Family Services. Both Rabbi Shull and his wife fell in love with Venice and always hoped to return one day as residents.

Their life journey subsequently took them to several locations on the East Coast with stops in Virginia Beach, VA, Rivervale, NJ, and Rockville, MD, where Rabbi Shull served congregations in each community. Finally, in the fall of 2019, they decided to move to Sarasota County and, as luck would have it, Ben was able to fill the rabbinic vacancy here at the JCV.

The rabbi has a Masters Degree in Social Work and was ordained as a rabbi by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. He loves teaching Judaism and guiding the JCV as it continues to build a supportive and welcoming Jewish community in this lovely part of the world.
