Congratulate Rabbi Jamie Korngold for earning an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity:
A note from Betsy McIntosh and the Adventure Judaism Board

It is with both gratitude and pride that I, and the rest of the Adventure Judaism Board, congratulate Rabbi Jamie for earning an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity from Hebrew Union College for her 25 years of exemplary service as a Rabbi.

Since joining the congregation in 2018, I have been so inspired by the way this community Rabbi Jamie has developed combines a love, respect, and awe of nature, with community and authentic connection.

Passover and Rosh Hashanah holiday retreats are opportunities for self-reflection, attunement to nature, and laughter and connection with friends new and old. At these events, we study core Jewish texts and consider how these ancient values have sustained our people for generations and will help us to thrive amidst modern challenges.

Rather than seeing these keystone holidays as stiff, uncomfortable, and isolating, I now cherish the ways I can feel comfortable, connected, and seen, both for my unique contributions and also, for the strands that bind me to the rest of the Jewish people.

Since establishing the Adventure Rabbi organization in 2001, Rabbi Jamie has touched hundreds of lives within our congregation, and thousands of lives around the world. We are so lucky to have her to study with and learn from!

I hope you will join me in recognizing Rabbi Jamie’s immense contributions to our lives and the ways she has changed the narrative about what a meaningful Jewish community can look like by donating to sustain and support Adventure Judaism, with a $25, $250, or $2500 donation in honor of Rabbi Jamie’s 25 years of service.  Donate here>>

If you’d like to cheer her on, her degree will be conferred on Thursday, March 28 at 9 am MT, and you can join virtually here.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in Moab, at summer hikes (coming soon!), and Shabbats on Flagstaff!

Best wishes,
Betsy

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
