Regardless of how we feel about it, 70% of liberal Jews today marry outside the faith. How we respond to this reality as families and communities has an enormous impact on whether they continue to participate in Jewish life, including whether they raise Jewish children. Please join us in conversation with Rabbi Aaron Lerner, who engages thousands of Jewish young people annually as they navigate through their Jewish journeys and make key life decisions.
Rabbi Aaron Lerner is passionate about creating inclusive and empowered Jewish community. He believes that Jewish tradition enriches and informs every aspect of life, and particularly enjoys encouraging college students to apply Jewish values as they grapple with life’s major questions during their most formative years.
During his time at Hillel at UCLA, Rabbi Aaron Lerner has helped expand Hillel’s leadership training program to include approximately 150 student leaders who reach nearly 1,800 Jewish students every year at UCLA. He has also played a key role in Israel advocacy and education on campus and in the national arena.
A Wexner Graduate Fellow, Aaron received ordination from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah with an emphasis in education. Prior to entering the world of education, Aaron worked for more than a decade in commercial real estate finance after graduating from USC’s Marshall School of Business.
