She's a rabbi!
I spotted Rabbinical Student on her way to make history on someone else's blog. It profiles convert Alysa Stanton who had an Orthodox conversion but found herself more at home in Reform Judaism. "[A Reform congregation] tends to be more welcoming to those who are not born Jewish," the blogpost quotes. Stanton is on her way to becoming the first female African-American rabbi in the United States.
