Rabbi Hayley Goldstein received smicha from the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in Newton, MA. She is fiercely dedicated to creating Jewish spiritual and educational environments that are empowering, inclusive, and allow room for play. From teaching kids Jewish spirituality in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, to her most recent experience of running a SVARA-Method beit midrash for LGBT women and gender non-conforming people in Jerusalem and again in Boston, she holds a wide variety of Jewish leadership experience and is excited to move to Ithaca to serve as the Base Rabbi at Cornell.
Nireh Or is a weekly response to the parsha with words of Torah by Rabbi Hayley Goldstein and artistic commentary by Lizzie Sivitz.
