With our 2023 Ordination-Graduation ceremony approaching, we are highlighting members of the graduating class. Click here to see all of the posts in this series.
Today we’re talking with Rabbinical Graduate Elizabeth Bat-Sarah.
1) With the ceremony approaching, what emotions are you feeling?
I’m very excited. I began cantorial school in 2008, always intending to continue with rabbinical school. It has been a long road. I have learned from so many remarkable people, and I have had the opportunity to serve several communities in a variety of roles. I’m looking forward to taking this next step in my journey.
2) What is one learning from your Academy experience that you will take with you after graduation?
There is always more to learn. Sometimes all the knowledge in the world is less important than being able to be authentically present with someone.
3) Is there anything you learned at AJRCA that truly surprised you?
The learning at AJRCA had added depth because of the wide variety of life experiences that my fellow students brought to class.
4) If you could go back in time and tell your pre-AJRCA self one thing, what would that be?
This is going to be a life-changing adventure. Savor it!
