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 support with a lifecycle event or to find inclusive Jewish events and meet other interfaith couples at your life stage, we’re here to support you. We have supportive rabbis on staff to help guide and connect you.

We are thrilled to have a Rukin Rabbinic Fellow here in the Bay Area to support you. Rabbi Laura Rumpf runs events for interfaith/intercultural couples to socialize and discuss relevant issues and workshops 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 laura@18Doors.org.

Meet Rabbi Rumpf

Laura Rumpf grew up in a loving interfaith home in San Francisco, CA, and graduated from Stanford University. She is happy to be back in her native Bay Area post-ordination from Hebrew Union College. Laura currently serves as a congregational rabbi at Peninsula Temple Beth El in San Mateo, and delights in the diversity of ways her job calls her to engage her spiritual curiosity—from leading workshops on resilience for teenagers, to organizing interfaith social justice efforts.

Laura is grateful to the Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship for introducing her to so many warm, inspiring couples and individuals. She enjoys journeying with those who seek support from 18Doors, and helping them find a spiritual home that’s meaningful and meets them where they are.
