Carol Calise

Rabbi Carol Calise co-leads Beth Emanuel Messianic Synagogue located in Holbrook, NY on Long Island with her husband Michael. Carol is from a Gentile background and came to faith at six years old. As a single woman she took the Covenant of Ruth and began to live a Jewish lifestyle in 1980. After living in Israel for a year on a kibbutz, Dr. Ray and Kassiani Gannon asked Carol to join their ministry team at Beth Emanuel in New York in 1983. She has been ministering at the congregation for the last 39 years. She and Michael became the Senior Rabbis in 1994.

Her passion is to see Jewish people come to faith in their Messiah. She loves to preach the Word and to see lives changed and transformed through the power of the Ruach (Spirit).

Carol graduated from Central Bible College in 1981 with a BA in Bible. She received her Master’s from NYU from the Department of Judaic Studies with a concentration in the Ancient Near East. She is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God.
