Dear Friends:

Graduation / Ordination is making history this year! We have ordained the third of three sisters in one family to become a rabbi at HUC-JIR on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the ordination of the first woman rabbi in America.

How did one Jewish family bring forth three such dedicated young women – and how did HUC-JIR prepare them for their rabbinates?

Meet Rabbi Ilana Mills and her sisters Rabbi Mari Chernow and Rabbi Jordana Chernow-Reader and discover their individual journeys toward leadership.

Ilana is but one of the 135 graduates of our 137th academic year, all of whom are committed to applying their deep knowledge, professional skills, pastoral care, and innovative vision to forging vibrant Jewish communities throughout North America.

Please click here to give as generously as you can to the Annual Fund Campaign by June 30 and ensure the next generations of gifted leaders for the Jewish people.

With heartfelt thanks for your support and warm wishes for a joyful Shavuot,

Rabbi David Ellenson, President   Irwin Engelman, Chairman, Board of Governors
Support HUC-JIR
