Emily Levine on Rabbi Jen Krause Jen on Emily

Just in case you're wondering, it doesn't bother me that Jen Krause knows more than I. She's a rabbi, ordained by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in N.Y. She's a featured speaker at the 92nd Second Street YM/YWHA, the Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning, the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan, just to name a few. She has her own monthly salon — "Oy Latte", at Joe, a Greenwich Village coffee-house — in which she engages people in dialogue about the human struggle to create lives of purpose and meaning. Jen is also a founder and organizer of Lishmah, a day of Jewish learning in NYC, which drew 1,200 participants and more than 100 presenters from all walks of Jewish life in its inaugural year. She's supposed to know more than I do... But where is it written that she should be funnier than I?
