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 Michael Satz, here in Morristown to support you.
Rabbi Michael 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 Michael 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. He 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 him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rabbi Michael Satz is the rabbi of Temple B’nai Or in Morristown, NJ. Ordained by HUC-JIR, the Reform Movement’s Seminary, in 2007, he has served communities in Cherry Hill, NJ, San Diego, CA and Toronto, ON, but his native St. Louis is always in his heart. Rabbi Satz studies and teaches the literature and practice of Mussar, a Jewish path of spiritual development. He also loves to play classic country songs on guitar and until a recent knee injury, practiced the Israeli martial art of Krav Maga. He is married to Rabbi Janice Elster and together they have two boys, Eitan and Ami. Rabbi Satz is looking forward to learning with this cohort of rabbis to think about how the Jewish community of the present and future can be more welcoming to all.
