Our Rabbi

Rabbi Melody Davis

Rabbi Davis – or 'Reb Melody' as she prefers to be called - is a 'local' girl, (depending on whose definition of 'local' one follows.) She has lived in the Lehigh Valley for 23 years. Home is a 260 year old stone farmhouse nestled by the Little Lehigh in Emmaus. She lives there with her husband Edwin - who refers to himself as her " Hubbitzen " - and their three children: Spencer, Jonathon and Annelise.

Reb Melody's journey to the rabbinate has been fascinating, challenging and circuitous. At the age of three, she knew she wanted to be a rabbi. After being pointedly informed that only men could be rabbis, she and Judaism parted ways. Yet every position she held had a "God" element to it.

She jokingly refers to her previous careers as 'past lives.' She worked sporadically as an actor, singer and director, then returned to college. While managing her husband's photography studio, Reb Melody taught taught traditional and contemporary holiday music in Hebrew, English and Yiddish to grades Pre-K through 6. She has also instructed children from 4th through 6th grade in a three day a week in after-school Talmud Torah program.

In her quest to share ' yiddishkeit ,' - Jewish life, customs and practices, Reb Melody is always teaching: currently she has a Judaism 10l class, a weekly torah study and an Introduction to Talmud class. She also serves as the Jewish Chaplain at the Country Meadows Retirement Community in Allentown. Reb Melody has a deep and abiding love for Judaism. She seeks out comfortable and joyful ways for people to come closer to God. She believes that each individual has a different way to approach The Eternal. Some of the modalities that she utilizes are drama, inter-linear Torah chanting, music, poetry, dance, literature, chanting and meditation.

Reb Melody is not only a teacher, but the perennial student. She enjoys learning from people of all ages. Her door, mind and heart are open to you.
