Rabbi Rebecca Einstein Schorr will be the featured speaker at the final Lunch & Learn of the year.

A former career-driven mother of three, Rabbi Schorr became a reluctant stay-at-home-mom when her autistic son and his two adorable sidekicks needed more from her. The transformation from a religious community leader to what her kids call a “house mother” has been nothing short of life-altering.

Ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Rabbi Schorr is a CLAL Rabbis Without Borders Fellow, a contributing author of “The New Normal: Blogging Disability,” and the editor of the newsletter of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. She is also a regular contributor to Kveller.com, RJ.org, and is a frequent guest on Huffington Post Live. Rabbi Schorr is a contributor to “The Sacred Encounter: Jewish Perspectives on Sexuality,” and is the co-editor of a forthcoming title on the impact of 40 years of women in the rabbinate.

Writing at her blog, This Messy Life (www.rebeccaeinsteinschorr.com), Rabbi Schorr finds meaning in the sacred and not-yet-sacred intersections of daily life. Engage with her on Twitter @rebeccaschorr.

Program is $12, including lunch. Men and women are welcome.
