Kelilah Miller, Bond 201
I grew up in a liberal-observant Jewish home in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia, about an hour away from Swarthmore. When I was a kid, I spent most of my time either up a tree or with my nose in a book (sometimes both). I was also lucky enough to come from a farming family, and I spent my childhood summers working and living with my family and our close friends on an organic meat farm in Lancaster County, PA. A lot of my spiritual development comes from that time on the farm, immersed in the rhythms of harvest and planting. I went to Boston University for undergrad, where I surprised myself by majoring in religion. I decided to become a rabbi a few years after I graduated from BU, when it became clear to me that there is nothing in this world that I love more than studying Jewish text, contemplating large realities, and connecting with other Jews and religious people of all stripes. I have completed my studies at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, after a spending a beautiful, fascinating, challenging, difficult, uplifting, and heartbreaking year living in Jerusalem. When I'm not doing rabbinic work or study, you might find me painting, singing, drumming, contra dancing, knitting, reading some good sci-fi, working out, playing board games, or hiking in the Wissahickon watershed (or possibly rewatching Firefly).
