The URJ announced increasing support and so are we through communication and education.
Rabbi Miri Gold was born in Detroit, Michigan, with family roots in Belarous. She graduated from the University of Michigan, cum laude in 1971, with a degree in Philosophy. She made aliyah to Kibbutz Gezer, located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, in 1977. In 1980 she and her husband went to the FSU to solidify contacts with refuseniks out of their belief in Jewish Peoplehood.
In March, 1999 became the third Reform woman rabbi to be ordained in Israel through Hebrew Union College, Jerusalem campus. She has served Kehilat Birkat Shalom since its founding in 1997.
Miri petitioned the Israel Supreme Court in 2005 demanding recognition as the rabbi of Gezer. In 2012, the Israel Attorney General decided that rabbis of non-Orthodox rural communities are entitled to salaries, setting an historic precedent. Rabbi Gold is the first non-Orthodox rabbi to be recognized by the State of Israel.
