Rabbi Miriam Grossman
Rabbi Miriam Grossman

Rabbi Miriam Grossman of the Kolot Chayeinu/Voices of Our Lives congregation in Brooklyn, New York, is an educator and organizer who leads through Jewish ritual. She teaches that following a Jewish theology means protecting the human rights of all people, including Palestinians.

Rabbi Miriam Grossman shares her changing perspective of Israel on National Public Radio. She had been taught not to trust or empathize with Palestinians and to dismiss charges of anti-Zionism or criticism of Israel as antisemitism. Now, her perspective involves an end to the occupation, an end to the siege on Gaza, an end to continued displacement and ethnic cleansing. Listen to the interview here.
