Final Installment of Scouts, Trailblazers, Pathfinders, Explorers:
A Conversation with Rabbi Sally J. Priesand

March 13 | 9:30 AM (OL)

In June 1972, Sally J. Priesand was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, OH, making her the first woman to be ordained as a rabbi in America, opening the door for subsequent generations of women to serve in the rabbinate.

Upon ordination, Rabbi Priesand accepted a position at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue in New York City where she served for seven years, first as Assistant Rabbi and then as Associate Rabbi.  From 1979-1981, she was Rabbi of Temple Beth El in Elizabeth, New Jersey and also served as Chaplain at Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital.  From 1981-2006, she served as Rabbi of Monmouth Reform Temple in Tinton Falls, New Jersey.  In 2006, she retired, becoming Rabbi Emerita.  From 2012-2017, she conducted High Holiday services with Cantor Ellen Sussman at Temple Shirat Shalom in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  

We are excited and honored to have Rabbi Sally J. Priesand join us in the concluding installment of the Scouts, Trailblazers, Pathfinders, Explorers series to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her ordination.

This event is open to the public as part of the Purim Across Bergen program.
