Rabbi Amy Eilberg
Jewish tradition brings great wisdom to the ever-present reality of interpersonal conflict in our lives. We will explore how our sacred texts can help us to bring our best selves to our most difficult conversations. In so doing, we respond to the Psalmist’s call to “seek peace and pursue it.”
Rabbi Amy Eilberg is the first woman ordained as a Conservative rabbi by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. She serves as the director of the Pardes Rodef Shalom (Pursuer of Peace) Communities Program, helping synagogues and Jewish organizations place the pursuit of peace in interpersonal relationships at the center of their communal mission. Rabbi Eilberg also serves as a spiritual director and interfaith activist in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her book, From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom and the Pursuit of Peace, was published by Orbis Books in March 2014. She received her Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities in 2016.
