Jewish Revolutionary Nonviolence


Jewish revolutionary nonviolence

Guiding Story strategies for Necessary Miracles! Caroline welcomes Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb

to “Explore legacies of Jewish and multi-heritage rituals born out of catastrophic loss and loving solidarity. Share how ceremony functions in contemporary emergent multi-heritage/faith networks dedicated to revolutionary nonviolence and social change…”


Lynn Gottlieb, one of the first women to become a rabbi in Jewish history, is a pioneer Jewish feminist, activist, writer, visual artist, ceremonialist, community organizer, storyteller and performing artist. She is co-founder of Shomeret Shalom Global Congregation and teacher of the path of the Torah of Nonviolence. Currently, Lynn is director of Youth and Family Programs at Chochmat HaLev Congregation in Berkeley, CA.

Rabbi Gottlieb is the author of She Who Dwells Within, “a practical guide to non-sexist Judaism,” published on March 3, 1995. Drawing on Gottlieb’s own experiences as well as on traditional and feminist midrash (stories that comment on Biblical texts), the book combines thoughtful essays on gender and Judaism with new rituals for the important moments in Jewish women’s lives. The title is taken from a translation of the word Shekhinah, traditionally understood as the feminine manifestation or aspect of God.
