Rabbi Patricia Fenton

“Rabbi Fenton’s unique gift to Judaism is her keen ability to see in each of her students their potential and the spark of Torah that resides in them — and only them. She is the humble teacher, working diligently in the beit midrash and helping fledgling rabbinical students of all ages come to know Torah and develop within themselves a storehouse of love, respect and dedication to serve the Jewish people. She will likely never be on the cover of Time or be the head rabbi of a large metropolitan synagogue, but if we are talking about the shape of the rabbinate, she is quietly shaping the future of American Judaism one student at a time.”

—CHANA ROSENSON
