We invite you to join together in learning and conversation as we prepare for our Passover seders in these challenging times.
The Passover seder in typical times is the most widely observed Jewish ritual in the world.
We often see images of large tables surrounded by family and friends in each chair, but we know this year that our tables will be smaller.
Together, let’s create ways that we can feel part of something larger, something traditional and something authentically our own.
A native of Los Angeles, Rabbi Michele Lenke D.Min was ordained from the Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. She spent much of career serving congregations in Massachusetts, and while there, Rabbi Lenke ran the Boston Area Reform Rabbis Beit Din for several years. Accompanying people along their Jewish journeys has been among her greatest rabbinic joys.
Rabbi Lenke is also Spiritual Director and earned her Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Counseling. Most recently, she trained as a Chaplain at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and is currently serving as a Chaplain at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana. Serving as a Chaplain in the time of COVID-19 has been an affirmative way to serve the community in such a time of crisis.
Rabbi Lenke is a longtime mentor to rabbinic students and rabbis and is excited about the future of Judaism. She is a proud member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Women's Rabbinic Network, the Southern California Board of Rabbis, the Pacific Association of Reform Rabbis, and The Sandra Caplan Community Bet Din, among others. Rabbi Lenke is passionate about her rabbinate and a firm believer that each of us is created in the image of the Holy One.
