Rabbi Rachel Isaacs, on “The Center for Small Town Jewish Life”

April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

UMaine Judaic Studies is proud to present an evening with Rabbi Rachel Isaacs, Executive Director of the Center for Small Town Jewish Life at Colby College. The spiritual leader of Beth Israel Congregation in Waterville, Maine, and Dorothy “Bibby” Levine Alfond chair in Jewish Studies at Colby, Rabbi Isaacs, was named one of “America’s Most Inspiring Rabbis” by the Jewish Daily Forward (2014). In 2016, she delivered the final Hanukkah benediction of the Obama administration at the White House.

Rabbi Isaacs will speak on the work of the Center for Small Town Jewish Life. Q&A and a light reception will follow. For those who cannot join us on campus, the event will be live-streamed on the UMaine Judaic Studies YouTube channel:
