Rabbi Lisa Rubin joined Central Synagogue in 2010 as the Director of the Center for Exploring Judaism, where she welcomes anyone interested in learning about Jewish tradition. Her passion for outreach and interfaith work was partially born of her early leadership role with Project Understanding, a Long Island foundation that sends Catholic and Jewish teens to Israel after a period of interfaith study.

Rabbi Rubin was ordained from the New York campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2006 after a first career in youth marketing and advertising at Leo Burnett in Chicago. She is originally from Atlanta, and graduated from the University of Michigan with honors.

Outside of work, Rabbi Rubin is an avid tennis player and fan. She is the COO of her Westchester household where she lives with her husband, three children, dog, goldfish, and hermit crabs.
