The Fair Lawn Jewish Center/Congregation B’nai Israel will hold an online discussion on the “Masorti Movement/Conservative Judaism in Israel Today” with Rabbi Amy Levin, president of the Rabbinical Assembly of Israel. It’s set for Wednesday, December 7, at 8 p.m, via Zoom. Rabbi Rachel Salston of the FLJC/CBI will moderate.
Rabbi Levin was the second woman ordained by the Masorti movement’s Schechter Rabbinical Seminary in Jerusalem. She trained at the Jewish Theological Seminary and the Alban Institute and has taught at the Schechter Institute, Hebrew Union College, and the Conservative Yeshiva. She also worked for more than 15 years as a pulpit rabbi, serving in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Rabbi Levin, who now lives on Kibbutz Hanaton in Israel, is on the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards and the Vaad Hakavod, the Ethics Committee of the international Rabbinical Assembly.
Rabbi Levin’s talk will focus on the impact of Israel’s recent election, which saw the right-wing national camp of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu achieve a parliamentary majority.
