7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an open Israel Committee Meeting with Rabbi Miri Gold. Rabbi Gold is visiting from Israel and plans to share an update on pluralism.
In March, 1999, Rabbi Gold became the third Reform woman rabbi to be ordained in Israel through Hebrew Union College, Jerusalem campus. She has served Kehilat Birkat Shalom (Temple Beth El’s sister congregation in Israel) since its founding in 1997. Miri petitioned the Israel Supreme Court in 2005 demanding recognition as the rabbi of Gezer. In 2012, the Israel Attorney General decided that rabbis of non-Orthodox rural communities are entitled to salaries, setting an historic precedent. Rabbi Gold is the first non-Orthodox rabbi to be recognized by the State of Israel.
