Leora Kaye

Jewish Food For Thought

Telephone: 917-853-3133

Email: show

Leora Kaye’s experience spans the spectrum of the “Jewish World” including education, programming, and filmmaking. As a rabbi she focuses on seeking new ways to expand people’s understanding of Judaism–encouraging them to approach it on their own terms, through teaching and offering opportunities in sophisticated and innovative ways, while infusing them with knowledge of Jewish tradition. She lives in Brooklyn with her daughter Galit and husband Doug, a writer and television producer.

How I Married an Atheist

Confessions of a Rabbi in an Interesting Marriage

Identity & Global Culture

We are all intermarried. Meeting and falling in love with an avowed Jewish atheist as a rabbinical student was not easy. Marrying him and working out our lives together as a rabbi—more fun, but equally challenging. In this session, we will talk about the realities of working out compromises and when to dig your heels in. I will tell you how we did it and teach the Jewish ideas behind making it work. (This session was made possible by funds from The Covenant Foundation.)

Gratitude: What Does Judaism Have to Say? (World Premiere)

Jewish Food for Thought: The Animated Series

Hanan Harchol, Leora Kaye

Arts & Performance, Sacred Text & Thought

What is the relationship between gratitude and happiness? Why is gratitude so important? And, what does religion have to say about it? Does Judaism say anything unexpected? Find out in the world premiere of the funny, engaging, and thought-provoking animated short, “You Can Dance,” part of the innovative new animated series on Jewish wisdom: “Jewish Food for Thought.” Hanan Harchol, creator of the series, and Rabbi Leora Kaye, author of the companion study guides, will discuss the impetus behind this exciting project and the tremendous impact it is having across the country and beyond. They will discuss their creative process, the arguments they have over finding the right tone, and the ways they look to you to continue the work. Come to one session in the series; or even better, come to all three! (This session was made possible by funds from The Covenant Foundation.)
