Join Dan and Miriam as they speak with the inspiring Rabbi Susan Abramson of Temple Shalom Emeth in Burlington. Abramson—the longest-serving female rabbi in Massachusetts—is co-founder of Burlington Area Clergy for Justice, an interfaith group of clergy and supporters who stand for immigrant rights and protest a local ICE facility each month.
Abramson also hosts “Spiritually Speaking,” a YouTube series in which she highlights the faith traditions and houses of worship in and around Burlington. (She recommends three of her videos as a primer: an interview with local Holocaust survivor Agnes Bales, reflections on being Jewish in our troubled world with ADL New England executive director Robert Trestan and members of her synagogue, and an interview with her friend Rabbi Kinneret Shiryon from a bomb shelter in Modi’in, Israel.)
Abramson is also the author of the “Rabbi Rocketpower” series of Jewish children’s books.
Tune in to hear about the importance of learning about different faith traditions and why taking action is the best way to protect your mental and emotional health when it sometimes feels like the world is going to hell in a hand-basket.
