The annual Rabbi Samuel Chiel Kallah is a stimulating weekend of prayer, study and good fellowship that finds its roots in the Talmudic period, when thousands of Jews flocked to the great academies of Babylonia to hear lectures by the scholar Rav. Our Kallah, named in 1978 as a tribute to the values taught by our Rav, Rabbi Samuel Chiel z”l, offers each of us the modern equivalent of this Talmudic institution.

Rabbi Dr. Bradley Shavit Artson holds the Abner and Roslyn Goldstine Dean’s Chair of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies and is vice president of American Jewish University in Los Angeles. Rabbi Artson has long been a passionate advocate for social justice, human dignity, diversity and inclusion. He supervises the Miller Introduction to Judaism Program and mentors Camp Ramah in California in Ojai and Ramah of Northern California in the Bay Area. He is also dean of the Zacharias Frankel College in Potsdam, Germany, ordaining Conservative rabbis for Europe.

A frequent contributor to HuffPost and The Times of Israel, he is the author of 12 books and over 250 articles, most recently “Renewing the Process of Creation: A Jewish Integration of Science and Spirit.”

Sponsored by the Ruth and Ron Silberstein Lecture Fund and the Rabbi Samuel Chiel Kallah Fund. Kallah co-chairs: Joan and Joe Ackerstein.
