4 Questions with…Our 2024 Graduates: Jill Gold Wright, PhD

With our 2024 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 Rabbinic Ordinee Jill Gold Wright, PhD.

1) With the ceremony approaching, what emotions are you feeling?

It’s so difficult to describe the whirlwind of emotions around my upcoming ordination, but I’ll begin by mentioning excitement, bittersweetness, jumpiness, pride, and wonder.


2) What is one learning from your Academy experience that you will take with you after graduation?

By studying with such a diverse group of Jews, I’ve learned an even deeper version of what we already know: We are all created b’tzelem Elohim – in the image of God, and that it’s only by dignifying each other’s holy souls that we can create a world of chesed and peace.


Congratulations Jill!
