Rabbi Ruth Gan Kagan: An Inspiration and Challenge of a Woman Rabbi in Israel.

Jewish Renewal in Israel, the only rabbi from the Jewish Renewal
movement leading a congregation in Israel is Rabbi Ruth Gan Kagan.

Brought up in a national religious Jewish family in Jerusalem, years of
standard orthodox traditional observance and behavior brought her and
her British born husband to seek a different, more creative and
spiritual way to be Jewish.

She received ordination in the US from Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi
and returned to Jerusalem to found and lead congregation Nava Tehila
*(she explains the translation/meaning in the interview…)*

Her web site is rebruth.org/35897/Nava-Tehila
