Emily Rogal is proud to be beginning her rabbinic education at Hebrew College. She graduated from The New School in 2017 with a degree in Religious Studies, where she focused on the mikveh as a site of contemporary feminist ritual intervention and care, before pursuing a Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School. She is a trained birth and postpartum doula, mikveh guide, and a Jewish educator invested in cultivating Jewish spaces which center reflection, resilience, joy, justice, and just the right amount of angst. Most recently, she has spent time working for Fat Torah (an organization centered on fat and body liberation in the Jewish community), USY (the USCJ’s youth group), and Harvard Hillel. She spends the majority of her free time drinking oat milk lattes, hunting down weird midrashim (which is basically rabbi fanfiction in her book), reading and writing fantasy, and finding her perpetually lost water bottle.
