Rabbi Minna Bromberg

I'm Rabbi Minna Bromberg, PhD and, more than anything, I am inspired (and compelled!) by this imperative from the Song of Songs: Hashmi'ini! Let me hear you! In other words, I am a voicefinder: devoted to listening deeply and to using my voice to help others find their own Torah. The Jewish learning I love best lets us dive into the tradition with our fullest selves and emerge with meanings that are inspiring, empowering, and healing.

As founder and president of Fat Torah, I am passionate about bringing my three decades of experience in fat activism to writing, teaching and change-making at the nexus of Judaism and body liberation. My forthcoming book is Belonging for Every Body: a Fat Torah guide to building inclusive community. I received my doctorate in sociology from Northwestern University, with a dissertation on identity formation in interfaith couples, and was ordained at Hebrew College in 2010. Since then I have: led a 250-family Conservative congregation in Reading, PA; released a fifth album of original music; and run the Year-in-Israel program for Hebrew College rabbinical students. I am also a voice teacher who specializes in helping people use their voices in leading prayer. I live in Jerusalem with my husband, Rabbi Dr. Alan Abrams, and our two children.
