The goal of this gathering is to create a reflective communal space, where we can learn from one another and help bring meaning to each week as we enter into Shabbat. Interested in giving a d'var torah, sharing something you've been working on, teaching a song or reading a poem? Email Rabbi Rachel Nussbaum.
On any given day, you might find Rachel meeting with new partners, preparing for life- cycle events, teaching Torah, pondering next year’s budget, or trying to keep her inbox below 1000 new messages! She also enjoys leading spirited prayer services and believes in the role of Judaism in working toward the principles of justice and service. Rachel co-founded Kavana in 2006 with Suzi LeVine, and since then has received national recognition and awards for her work. She is a native of Charleston and was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary.
