Rabbi Scott White

Congregation Ohev Sholom’s spiritual leader since 2005, Rabbi Scott White was born and raised in our area. After graduating in the top 100 percent of Shawnee Mission East’s class of 1975, he somehow managed to scrape together enough credits to receive a Bachelor’s in Journalism from KU in 1979.

A glutton for punishment, in 1986 he completed the equivalent of 89 semester courses at The Jewish Theological Seminary of America and received a Master’s degree and Rabbinic ordination.

Rabbi White and his wife Civia proudly reside on the Missouri side, where the budget is always balanced and the public schools fully funded.
