Even if you do not attend Shabbat morning services, come!
Rabbi Sattath is the Executive Director of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), the oldest and most influential civil and human rights organization in Israel. She is an ordained Reform Rabbi and spent the past 11 years as Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC), where she was responsible for leading the organization’s public strategy regarding religion and state, gender equality, and the fight against racism. She has been a partner in leading social justice struggles, especially the struggle against the exclusion of women and against the election of racist candidates running for Knesset.
Prior to IRAC, Rabbi Sattath served as Executive Director of the Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance, where she aided in the historic move to lead the first Pride March in the city. She also served as Executive Director for MEET, an organization that uses technology to develop the joint leadership of young Israelis and Palestinians from Israel and the West Bank.
