The Musings of a Rabbi
Hello and Welcome to my first Newsletter. A newsletter of a rabbi on a path of discovery and learning. You are receiving this newsletter because many of you have signed up on the mailing list from my website and want to stay updated on things that are happening. I’ve always wanted an easy way to create a newsletter and I think I may have found it with this platform.
Here are some professional and a little personal information about me:
My name is Rabbi Sandra Lawson (she/her) I work with senior staff, lay leaders, clergy, rabbinical students, and Reconstructionist communities to help Reconstructing Judaism realize its deeply held aspiration of moving toward being an anti-racist organization and movement. And the coolest part of my job is that I serve as a mentor to rabbinical students.
I was ordained in 2018 at Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. I have been featured in podcasts, essays, television, radio and I am a well sought-after speaker. In 2020, I was named to the Forward 50 and called the “truth-teller”.
Prior to joining Reconstructing Judaism, I served as the Associate Chaplain for Jewish Life and the Jewish Educator at Hillel at Elon University in North Carolina. I am also the founder and spiritual leader of an emerging Jewish community Kol Hapanim – All Faces – an inclusive, Jewish community that is relevant, accessible, and rooted in tradition, where all who come are welcomed and diversity is embraced.
I was born in St. Louis, Mo., and grew up in a military family. I also served in the U.S. Army. After leaving the military I started a personal training business and worked as the investigative researcher for the Anti-Defamation League’s Southeast Region becoming the go-to person when law enforcement in the South needed information on hate groups in the south.
Currently, I live in North Carolina with my wife Susan our three “fur babies”: Izzy, Bridget, and Simon. During my free time, you can find me at the gym, hiking, biking, or playing music on my porch.
I hope you enjoy this newsletter. There will also be another one coming shortly. Have a great day.
