Women’s Rabbinic Network Visit Boulder to Learn with Adventure Rabbi

Members of the Women’s Rabbinic Network –the professional conference for female Reform rabbis — gathered in Colorado this week to study with their Scholar-in-Residence Rabbi Jamie Korngold.

“We are ready to venture out of our usual conference model. We hope that our time with Jamie will enable us to both rejuvenate personally and reinvigorate our rabbinates,” said convention coordinator Rabbi Einstein Schorr.

“It’s a beautiful honor for me,” explained Rabbi Korngold. “I am often invited to be the scholar in residences all over the country, but to have my colleagues choose to come here to study with me and share in what I do was really a delight.”

The participants explored the three types of adventures that are part of the Adventure Rabbi experience:

  1. Physical Adventure – How does being outdoors hiking effect the Jewish learning and prayer?
  2. Intellectual Adventure – What do we believe about God and how does that shape our lives?
  3. Institutional Adventure – Reimagining what it means to be a congregation, a rabbi or a bat/bar mitzvah.

In addition to learning and hiking with the Adventure Rabbi, the rabbis visited the goat co-op and Congregation Har HaShem, learned with Rabbi Kari Tuling, Larry Dressler, Morah Yehudis and Risa Aqua and prayed with Rabbi Deborah Bronstein, Rabbi Keren Gorban and Cantor Elizabeth Sacks.

Women’s Rabbinic Network represents over 700 rabbis from all over the world. Conference participants came from as far away as Argentina and Israel.
