Rabbi-to-be Chloe ZelkhaBack
Chloe Zelkha has spent a decade designing transformative group experiences for young people and adults.
Previously, Chloe served as the Fellowship Director at Urban Adamah in Berkeley, leading cohorts of emerging adults through semester-long deep dives into sustainable agriculture, Judaism, mindfulness, and social justice. Previously, she trained with JOIN for Justice and built power with young people in the Boston area. After a season of personal loss, she trained as a chaplain at UCSF Mission Bay Hospital’s residency program, where she primarily served the NICU and adult oncology units. She is the co-founder of the Covid Grief Network—now a project of Reimagine—and the author of Being with Grief, a creative workbook for loss.
Through her fellowship with Atra, Chloe aims to design and facilitate immersive, cohort-based retreat experiences for Jewish young adults who have experienced significant loss, connecting grieving young people to themselves, community, and Jewish ancestral wisdom.
Chloe holds a BA in Religion from Carleton College and an MA in Education from Harvard University. She is currently a rabbinical student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, where she is a Wexner Graduate Fellow.
