Megan is the Rabbi at Silverstein Base Hillel in Lincoln Park which is part of Metro Chicago Hillel. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 with a B.A. in Psychology and Women’s Studies. Megan then went to work for the Hillel at Yale University where she discovered her passion for working with college students, and realized that rather than pursuing a PhD in Clinical psychology she wanted to use the Jewish tradition as a source of meaning to empower young adults to create their own rich Jewish identities. Megan was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2014 and also received an MA in Jewish Gender and Women’s Studies and a certificate in Pastoral Care and Counseling. Megan, her wife Paige and their daughter Bri live at the Silverstein Base Hillel home, which serves as a hub for young adults craving meaningful, welcoming, vibrant Jewish life in the best city in the world!
