Stephanie Breitsman

Stephanie is a Jew-by-choice, a spiritual seeker, an art hobbyist, and a casual gamer. Raised in a secular family of Christian origins, she unexpectedly found her home in the American Jewish community when she befriended her college's Hillel president in the campus garden. Stephanie is currently a rabbinical student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She is passionate about Torah, ritual, and prayer and experimenting with ways to make them meaningful in our daily lives. She firmly believes that there is no one-size-fits-all way to be Jewish, and in her rabbinate, she hopes to help people find their own personal ways to relate to Jewish tradition and practice. Stephanie also has a Master's degree in Middle East Studies from the George Washington University, and spent the last two summers studying Hebrew at Middlebury College.
