We were so relieved to take a break from worrying about COVID-19! We then had the honor of speaking with Rabbi Denise Eger, a true role model, and to hear about her two new books: Gender and Religious Leadership: Women Rabbis, Pastors, and Ministers (Lexington Press), and Mishkan Ga’avah: Where Pride Dwells, A Celebration of LGBTQ Jewish Life and Ritual (CCAR Press). Enjoy!

It’s Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month #JDAIM2020 so who better to talk to than Rabbi Lauren Tuchman, the first blind woman in the world to become a Rabbi? Rabbi Tuchman talks to us about inclusion, ally-ship and accommodation. Where is the Jewish community getting it right and where can we be doing better?
Rabbinical student Emily Holtzman talks with us about the joys and oys of rabbinical school: How do they choose which school to attend? What do they do all day? What happens when they have unique learning needs or health concerns? How do they get a date? If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a rabbinical student, this “tell all” episode is for you!
You’ve heard of “taking it to the street” but Rabbi Jill Zimmerman takes it to the Tweet! Join us as Rabbi Zimmerman talks to us about her online rabbinate, where she shares her passion for mindfulness from the perspective of Judaism, and Judaism from the perspective of mindfulness.
Rabbi Celia Surget joins Rabbi Marci Bellows and Rabbi Emma Gottlieb at the URJ Biennial! She tells us all about her experiences as a Jew growing up in Switzerland and as a rabbi in France and England. Together, we ponder the growing reality of antisemitism across continents. Plus, if you’ve ever wondered how to address a woman rabbi (or any rabbi) in French, this is the episode for you!
