Welcome and About Me


Welcome! My name is Micah Streiffer. I am a Rabbi, a writer, a musician, and a teacher.

An Alabama native and a product of Reform Judaism, I was ordained a Rabbi in 2007 at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. Today, I serve as spiritual leader of Kol Ami, a busy synagogue outside Toronto, Canada, which is uniquely focused around lifelong learning, music, and adult education.

I write and teach on religious identity, Jewish thought and history, and what it means to be a progressive Jew in the 21st century. In addition to this blog, my writings have appeared at Jewish Values Online, the Jewish Literary Journal, and various Reform Jewish publications.
