Creating Safe Spaces in the Jewish Community for LGBTQ Youth


Sunday Morning June 1st, 10:15 - noon

Rabbi Sarah Meytin

Creating safe places

Join us for the fourth in the series, "Women Rabbis of Tifereth lsrael,"
sponsored by
Kol Nashim.

Rabbi Sarah Meytin will talk about Rockville Open House, a program she founded as a safe space for LGBTQ Jewish teens and their allies. She will give a background on the program, why she felt compelled to start it, and the importance of such a program for the Jewish community.

Ordained at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2004, Rabbi Sarah Meytin earned a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania prior to beginning her Rabbinic studies. In 2009 Rabbi Meytin founded Rockville Open House, and has developed a workshop for preschools on welcoming gender non-conforming children.

She has worked as the Assistant Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington, as a preschool teacher, and is currently the Assistant Director of Gan HaYeled, the preschool at Adas Israel Congregation.
