The Hebrew Union College recently marked the 100th ordination of a graduate from its Israeli Reform rabbinical program.

Rabbi Na’ama Kelman-Ezrahi, the first woman ordained in Israel 25 years ago, now heads the institution that ordained her daughter, Leora Ezrahi-Vered, a mother of three, serving as rabbi of a community in the north of the country.
