Are you looking for Jewish clergy for your upcoming wedding or baby naming? Seeking help on your journey to conversion? If you’re looking for guidance with a lifecycle event or to find inclusive Jewish events and meet other interfaith couples at your life stage, we’re here to help you. We are thrilled to have a Rukin Rabbinic Fellow, Rabbi Michal Woll, here in Milwaukee to support you.
Rabbi Michal and our other Rukin Fellows throughout the US and Canada offer programming for interfaith/intercultural couples and families to discuss relevant issues. We hope you’ll join Rabbi Michal for programs and workshops, which include opportunities to reflect on your backgrounds, differences and similarities and discuss your hopes, plans and dreams for the future. She is also available for one-on-one consultations and to refer you to local Jewish clergy and organizations that welcome interfaith/intercultural couples and families. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rabbi Michal Woll is rabbi of Congregation Shir Hadash in Milwaukee and a graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She is third career rabbi, with corporate and clinical experience that manifests through her interests in end-of-life care and medical ethics. Rabbi Michal brings love of music, learning, justice and creativity to her rabbinate. At Shir, Michal is fostering a more urban, inclusive, progressive, and activist Jewish presence in the city of Milwaukee, where she is involved in interfaith justice work and dialogue.
Rabbi Michal lives with her husband, author Jon M. Sweeney, their daughters Ana and Sima, and their aging mutt Max. In 2013, Michal and Jon co-authored the book, Mixed-Up Love: Relationships, Family, and Religious Identity in the 21st Century (Hachette). Their relationship and family have been profiled in national media. Michal is excited to join the community of Rukin fellows and to create new possibilities for interfaith couples and families in Brew City with the support of 18Doors.
