This is the story of Rabbi Maya Leibovich’s life. She is the first Israeli-born woman ordained as rabbi by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Jerusalem. Since her ordination in 1993, she has led a congregation of the Reform Movement in Mevasseret Zion which grew to over two hundred families, served as head of the Israeli Reform Rabbinical council, and was amongst the first rabbis to go to the Former Soviet Union and teach Reform Judaism. In her retirement, Maya serves as Summer Rabbi to B’nai Israel in Petoskey. During the year she dedicates time to a Women's Shelter in Jerusalem, participates in surveillance over road blocks and volunteers in Alyn at a
rehabilitation center for physically challenged and disabled children, adolescents and young adults.
