Please join us for our Women's History Month kickoff luncheon. We are pleased to have Rabbi Elana Kanter (she/her/hers) joining us as our keynote for the event. Rabbi Elana Kanter, Director of the Women’s Leadership Institute, is a graduate of Barnard College and a member of the first class of women rabbis of the Jewish Theological Seminary. She was ordained in 1989. In 1998, Rabbi Kanter received the Covenant Award for Exceptional Jewish Educators for her work in Adult Jewish Learning.
Rabbi Elana Kanter grew up during a time when there were no women rabbis in the United States. Her path to the rabbinate paralleled changes in American Judaism that eventually led to greater diversity in Jewish life. In her journey toward religious leadership, she will offer glimpses into the beauty of Jewish living, a religion and culture that has continued for thousands of years, in spite of those who wished otherwise.
