Women Rabbis Building Communities in 21st Century New Mexico
Hosted By: Jewish Federation of New Mexico
Join the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society (NMJHS) for a presentation on women rabbis in the 21st century. This presentation will focus on the stories shared by Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, Rabbi Malka Drucker, Rabbi Shefa Gold, Rabbi Min Kantrowitz, and Rabbi Deborah Brin between 2001 and 2012 while Dr. Kano conducted research to complete her doctorate in Anthropology. As members of the first and second generation of women rabbis to practice in the United States these five women offered unique perspectives on the recent histories and future directions of both American and Jewish cultures. The rabbis were open and approachable leaders who were able to tell personal stories about expanding notions of Jewish identity and belonging while discovering new opportunities to write in the expanding margins of a fluid Jewish society.
