Rabbi Lee Moore
Director of Jewish and Organizational Learning
Lee joined the Lippman Kanfer team in the Fall of 2010, having been ordained that year from the Hebrew College Rabbinical School. She has especially contributed to the foundation’s shift toward a Living Torah approach, contributing conceptual work on models such as Jewish fluency, Jewish Sensibilities and Applied Jewish Wisdom. She developed the Jewish Sensibilities Deck.
Lee holds an MS in Environmental Policy from the University of Michigan – where her thesis addressed Shabbat as an Environmentally Sustainable Institution – and a BA in Religious Studies from Wesleyan University. Prior to becoming a rabbi, Lee worked in the fields of organizational development and spiritual retreat production, and spent many moons living and studying in Israel. She served as Interim Director of the Elat Chayyim Center for Jewish Spirituality and Rabbinic Intern at Temple Beth Zion in Brookline, MA. Lee edited a Haggadah supplement for Rabbis for Human Rights on economic justice called l’Dor va’Dor; co-authored A Practical Guide to Consensus, a handbook on collaborative decision making; and recorded Rava d’Ravin, an album of Hebrew and English chants. Lee enjoys traveling, yoga, theology, dancing, practicing nonviolent communication and making sacred music with friends. Lee also provides spiritual leadership for Hillel at Kent State in her hometown of Kent, Ohio.
