We’re so proud of our Board Member and Seminary Leadership Project Co-Founder Rabbi Stephanie Kolin for being selected as a member of the Inaugural Class of the Auburn Seminary’s Senior Fellows. Stephanie joins an inspiring and powerful cohort of faith leaders working to build a multi-faith movement for social justice.
The goal of the Auburn Senior Fellows program is to equip, platform, and network faith leaders who have great potential to catalyze and advance multifaith movements for justice.
Senior Fellows remain in their particular leadership contexts, continuing to serve in nonprofit organizations, congregations, educational institutions, or other leadership positions. Senior Fellows gather for two retreats a year and receive executive coaching and consulting support from Auburn throughout the year. Once elected, Senior Fellows are invited to remain in the program for as long as they are actively engaged in faith-rooted justice work and committed to participating in the program.
Rabbi Stephanie Kolin is the new Associate Rabbi at Central Synagogue in NYC. Stephanie will be working with the congregation on issues of social justice, organizing in partnership across lines of faith, race, and economic differences in order to heal suffering in our world. From 2011–2015 she co-directed Just Congregations, a community-organizing program of the Union for Reform Judaism, supporting 250 Reform Jewish congregations that participate in community organizing. Stephanie was the lead organizer for and a founder of Reform CA, a statewide campaign for political change.
