Rabbi Viktoria Bedo's Biography

Rabbi Viki Bedo serves as the assistant rabbi at Congregation Olam Tikvah in Fairfax, VA, near Washington DC. She received her rabbinic ordination in 2021 from the Jewish Theological Seminary, where she was a Wexner Graduate Fellow. While at JTS, Rabbi Bedo was the rabbinical intern at Park Avenue Synagogue, worked as a Jewish education consultant for BBYO, and was a rabbinic fellow through Hillel’s Office of Innovation. She completed her unit of chaplaincy training working with Holocaust survivors in New York. Rabbi Bedo graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University with a B.A. in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, as well as International and Global Studies. Prior to attending college, she spent two years at the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem, where she first fell in love with rabbinic texts. Though born in Gothenburg, Sweden, she grew up in Budapest, Hungary where much of her family lives today and where she has strong ties to the Jewish community. She enjoys running, going to the theater, and coming up with creative menus for Shabbat meals, as well as spending time with her husband, Jonah, and their children Lev and Laila.
