Rabbi Heather MillerBack
Rabbi Heather Miller founded Keeping It Sacred (KITS), a growing community of people exploring questions of meaning, with dedicated members on six continents. Like her grandma Fruma “Kit” Endler z”l, for whom the KITS community is named, Rabbi Miller exudes a love of bold, joyful, accessible, relevant and empowering Jewish learning. She wrote RE(SOUL)UTIONS: A Practical Guide to Self-Repair, to deepen the introspective days of Elul, and has authored several entries in other publications including Mishkan Ga’avah: A Celebration of LGBTQ Jewish Life and Rituals, and Prophetic Voices: Renewing and Reimagining Haftarah. She is a sought after speaker featured on various podcasts including Women Rabbis Talk, Sacred Spaces, and Torah for Christians.
Rabbi Miller hails from an interfaith family with clergy on both sides, and has been recognized for her commitment to social justice as the recipient of the Liberty Hill Foundation Leader to Watch Award (2013), and the CLUE Giant of Justice Award (2018). She was ordained by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, where she received several awards for Homiletics, Talmudic Literature, and Ecumenical Studies, and is a proud board member of the Women’s Rabbinic Network.
