We welcome Naomi Gurt Lind as this year’s Rabbinic intern. Naomi will lead Traditional Shacharit Minyan on Shabbat mornings at 9 am and then Nosh & Drash on the Saturdays listed below. Naomi Gurt Lind (she/her) is in her third year of Rabbinical School at Hebrew College, where she is an Innovation Lab grant recipient, editor (and occasional writer) for the 70 Faces of Torah blog, and a member of the inaugural cohort of Mayyim Rabbim Fellows at Mayyim Hayyim Community Mikveh. Naomi has completed study programs with Hadar, Drisha, and Aleph Jewish Renewal and has previously served as Rabbinic Intern at Temple Israel of Boston and Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline, MA and as Student Rabbi at Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor, MI (her hometown). This year she is serving as the Student Rabbi of Congregation Betenu in Amherst, NH.
In addition to her congregational work, Naomi is a sought-after educator, with successful courses to her credit through Open Circle Jewish Learning (Hebrew College), Temple Israel of Boston, Brookline Community Tikkun Leyl Shavuot, and Temple Shalom of Newton, among others. She cultivates a lively classroom with plenty of space for questioning, discovery, and connection.
In her free time, she reads, writes divrei Torah on her blog Jewish Themes, solves crossword puzzles (in pencil!), and bakes a legendary challah. Naomi lives with her husband, Bill, and their two sons, Akiva and Gideon, in the Boston area.
