Meet the Rabbi
Shalom! My name is Annie Belford, and I am filled with joy and a sense of deep honor to be a part of the only Reform Synagogue in West Houston. My rabbinate has been defined by bringing Jewish learning to life, allowing tradition to speak to us as modern, liberal Jews, and being fully present to members of my community in times of struggle as well as times of joy. The personal connections I form with people are the heart and soul of why I am a rabbi, for I believe that in these very human connections, we find connection with God. One of Judaism’s fundamental beliefs – the one that I believe most strongly – is that all people are made b’tzelem Elohim, in the image of God. Because of this fundamental belief, I recognize the image of God in everyone—regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, or background. I strive to honor the holiness in each person and greet them with openness and kindness. I am truly in love with Judaism and its teachings; I look forward to the struggles our tradition demands, and I rejoice in the ways it uplifts my life. Judaism has the power to move us, change us, and shape our lives—a power that only comes fully alive in a community such as Temple Sinai.
