This is a joint event with Beth Shalom Synagogue and Congregation B’nai Israel in partnership with Institute of Southern Jewish Life.
Rabbi Rachel Mikva is the Herman E. Schaalman Chair in Jewish Studies and Senior Faculty Fellow of the Interreligious Institute at the Chicago Theological Seminary. Her work is on the cutting edge of theological education and training for religious leaders who build bridges across cultural and religious differences for social transformation. As a congregational rabbi in Chicago and New York, Rabbi Mikva earned a reputation as an outspoken advocate for justice.
