Community Shabbat Dinner with Clergy Candidate Rabbi Annie Lewis

March 22 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

After services, join fellow BZBI members as we welcome the spirit of Shabbat. This is a Shabbat dinner you won’t want to miss, as we celebrate together in a warm and welcoming atmosphere with singing, socializing and conversation over a delicious communal meal.

This Shabbat we welcome clergy candidate Rabbi Annie Lewis. After dinner we will hold a Q&A.

Rabbi Annie Lewis’ formative Jewish experiences took place at the Jewish Center of Princeton (NJ) and Camp Ramah in the Poconos. After spending time in Israel, including as a madrikhah (counselor) on USY’s Nativ Leadership Program, Rabbi Lewis received her rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary, where she was a Wexner Graduate Fellow. She also holds a B.A. in Anthropology-Linguistics and Judaic Studies from Brown University and an M.A. in Jewish Gender and Women’s Studies from JTS.

Rabbi Lewis formerly served as Assistant Rabbi at the Germantown Jewish Centre in Mt. Airy and was a Visiting Rabbi at Congregation Beth Israel of Gulfport, Mississippi for several years. She is currently the Director of Rabbinic Formation at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, where she is a senior member of the academic administration, overseeing all field education for the rabbinical students. Rabbi Lewis also has extensive experience in community organizing, social justice activism, and family counseling. In recognition of her scholarship and thought leadership in the American Jewish community, she was recently awarded a David Hartman Center Fellowship from the Shalom Hartman Institute. Her poetry and essays have been published in Lilith Magazine, Sh’ma: A Journal of Jewish Ideas, and Kveller among other print and online media outlets.

Rabbi Lewis is also familiar to many of us, having joined the BZBI community with her partner, Rabbi Yosef Goldman, in 2014. She and Rabbi Yosef are the parents of Shir Emet and Zohar, who is a student in our Early Childhood program.
