Rabbi Deborah Waxman, Ph.D., will speak at Havurah Shalom on Wednesday, Jan. 23, about the Reconstructionist movement and resilience during our challenging political climate.

The first woman rabbi to head a Jewish congregational union and a Jewish seminary, Rabbi Waxman became president of Reconstructing Judaism in 2014, and is the movement’s leading voice in the public square. She is a cum laude graduate of Columbia College, Columbia University, and a recipient of a rabbinical ordination and a Master of Arts in Hebrew letters from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in 1999. She earned a Ph.D. in American Jewish history from Temple University in May 2010.

Rabbi Waxman is committed to visiting all Reconstructionist communities in the U.S. and has already visited more than 50. She is also the sister of Havurah member Andy Waxman.
