PARSIPPANY — The popular Third Friday Speaker Series continues at Temple Beth Am on Friday, January 19 at 7:30 p.m., with a timely and engaging speaker: Rabbi Ellen Nemhouser of the Faith Alliance, who will discuss Jews, Christians, and Muslims working together in today’s political climate.
Rabbi Nemhouser has served in the Union for Reform Judaism in the National Education Dept., at Hebrew Union College as director of continuing education for rabbis, in both a reform and conservative congregation as director of education, and most recently, under the direction of Professor Ken Stein, she worked at Center for Israel Education developing curricula and workshops on the context and history of Modern Israel.
Currently, Rabbi Nemhouser works and volunteers for Interfaith Atlanta. Her involvement in this programming includes serving on the board of Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta, as a frequent teacher, speaker, and panelist in interfaith programs, and a trip leader for World Pilgrims.
The Rabbi is serving her fourth year as co- president of the Women’s Rabbinic Network. She is an Executive Committee member of Atlanta’s Jewish Community Relations Council and serves on the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival selection committee.
