Shabbat Shelanu Welcomes Rabbi Lauren Tuchman for Jewish Disabilities Awareness & Inclusion Month
In honor of Jewish Diabilities Awareness & Inclusion Month, Anshe Emet is proud to welcome Rabbi Lauren Tuchman who will join our congregation over the JDAIM Weekend.
Rabbi Lauren Tuchman received rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2018 and is, as far as she is aware, the first blind woman in the world to enter the rabbinate. A sought after speaker, spiritual leader and educator, Rabbi Tuchman has taught at numerous synagogues and other Jewish venues throughout North America and was named to the Jewish Week’s 36 under 36 for her innovative leadership concerning inclusion of Jews with disabilities in all aspects of Jewish life.
