Rabbi Harold J. Kravitz

Adath Jeshurun Congregation | Minnetonka, Minnesota | 55 years old
Conservative | Jewish Theological Seminary

“When our daughter, Karen, died 12 years ago, Rabbi Kravitz helped us find a meaningful way to honor her memory — by establishing the Keren Or Creative Arts Forum to encourage artistic activities of Jewish youth in Minnesota. He has been a source of great comfort to us in our time of loss. On a congregational trip to Israel in 2005, we were among the least mobile of the group, and he was constantly attentive to our needs and whereabouts. His unspoken motto: No Jew Left Behind. Because of his reputation, he attracts gifted young rabbis to our congregation and has greatly enriched my life and the lives of the Jewish community in the Twin Cities.”
