The Challenges of Small Town Jewish Life
After growing up in a major Jewish community on the Jersey shore and attending Wellesley college, Rabbi Rachel Isaacs was the first openly lesbian Rabbi to be ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary. She began her career in the rabbinate in a place she never could have imagined with more moose and blueberries than Jews. In this session Rabbi Isaacs will discuss her unexpected path to the rural rabbinate, its unique challenges and blessings, the establishment of the Center for Small Town Jewish Life at Colby college, and the connection between the thriving of small town Jewish communities and the health of American democracy.
