Northern Hills Synagogue Presents:

Selichot Program with Rabbi Julie Schwartz

Saturday, September 1, 2018
7:30 p.m.

Rabbi Julie Schwartz, newly appointed Associate Dean of Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, will present a program before the Selichot service at Northern Hills Synagogue on Saturday, September 1, at 7:30 pm.  Entitled "Listening and Speaking: Creating Holy Communication," her talk focuses on listening and being listened to. The period of introspection before the High Holidays is an excellent time to ponder how we can be more mindful in our communication with others.

Rabbi Schwartz is uniquely qualified to teach on this subject. After her ordination from HUC-JIR in 1986, she became the first woman rabbi to serve on active duty as a chaplain in the United States military. She has advanced training in pastoral care and counseling and in adult education. She was certified as a Jewish chaplain by the National Association of Jewish Chaplains and became a certified supervisor of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE.)

In the early 1990s, she established the first CPE program ever affiliated with a rabbinical school. She became the chair of Chaplaincy Certification for Neshama: Association of Jewish Chaplains (NAJC) and is a member of the regional accreditation commission of the ACPE.

Rabbi Schwartz is a Cincinnati native and a summa cum laude graduate of Walnut Hills High School. Her undergraduate degree is from Northwestern University in modern history.

Following Rabbi Schwartz's program and dessert, the Selichot service will begin with Maariv. Selichot is the service of penitential prayers and poems traditionally recited beginning on the Saturday night before Rosh Hashanah. The entire evening is free and open to the community.
