On June 3, 1972, Rabbi Sally Priesand was ordained by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion as the first woman rabbi in North America. To celebrate this milestone in Jewish and American history, HUC’s Dr. Bernard Heller Museum in New York partnered with The Braid’s Story Archive of Women Rabbis in Los Angeles to create the exhibition “Holy Sparks,” presenting 24 ground-breaking women rabbis who were “firsts” in their time.
