Rabbi Selch is a staff chaplain with the Jewish Chaplaincy Council of Massachusetts. She has served as a pulpit rabbi with congregations in Minnesota, Maryland, New York, and Israel, and was the interim education director at Congregation B'nai Israel in Northampton. Ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, where she also received an M.A. In Jewish studies, Rabbi Selch is known for her innovative programming and warm, heymish presentation.
We will break between workshops for some shmoozing and eating, and will close the afternoon with a creative and fun final workshop including bibliodrama and a parade. The afternoon begins at 12:30 and runs until 4:30. If you cannot come of the whole program, feel free to drop in when you can!
