This Is What Jewish Looks Like: Rabbi Isaama Golstein-Stoll

Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC

It’s long been a point of pride that Jews are a multicultural people with roots in every corner of the planet; that we are of all hues; that our grandparents spoke Yiddish and Hindi, German and Malayalam, Hebrew and Amharic.

For Black History Month, The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center will celebrate our richly diverse experience through the personal stories of four prominent Black Jews who will talk about life as a minority within a minority and discuss what the Jewish community needs to do to turn the word inclusion into a reality.

Senior Jewish educator in the Chaplain’s office at Yale University, Rabbi Goldstein-Stoll grew up in the Reform movement, from NFTY (the Reform Jewish Youth Movement) and URJ Camp Harlam, to her ordination at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. She is active in Be’chol Lashon, an organization dedicated to serving Jews of Color, and is an advocate around issues of Jewish diversity.
