New Executive Director, Rabbi Rain

Rabbi Rain Praying

We welcome Rabbi Rain Zohav as the new Executive Director of Jews Of The Earth. Cara Judea Alhadeff will remain as the Program Director.

Rabbi Rain is a lifelong activist, and has organized around issues of racial, economic, and environmental justice. Most recently she organized the delivery of over 100 faith-based letters to the former head of the EPA, Scott Pruitt and answered the call for clergy to support the water protectors at Standing Rock. She has taught two series of classes on the topic of “Social Action Education as Spiritual Practice”.

You can see her in action at an EPA prayer gathering here.

She wrote this letter to the editor as her first action as executive director of JOTE.
