Hanna Yerushalmi grew up in the Midwest, where kindness is a priority and listening is the first step in a relationship. And so relationships became the lens through which she views the world. Over the years, this lens further propelled her to the rabbinate and working in relational life. Hanna is an ordained rabbi and served a congregation in Philadelphia, PA, where she worked as that congregations’s first woman rabbi. She also served as the Admission Director of a day school and taught Hebrew at the local Community College. Currently, she is a licensed professional counselor and works in a therapy practice with couples and individuals around issues of intimacy. Currently, Hanna lives in Annapolis and together with her husband is raising four children by teaching them about kindness and the value of listening.
