News Highlights Meet Rabbi Jenna Shaw

As a non-binary person, Rabbi Jenna understands especially well the challenges diversity brings. “I think people have many perceptions of what a Rabbi is,” they reflected. “I think, for me, my queerness has put me in a place where I’ve had to think a lot about power and I’m really mindful of how much power and authority I have. I also think with power and authority comes responsibility and I think my queerness has made me grapple with those questions in ways that I think a lot of people who aren’t queer don’t have to.”
