Camille Shira Angel, an adjunct professor in the Swig Program in Jewish Studies and Social Justice, at the University of San Francisco is also an ordained rabbi from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, and the author of articles including “Crafting a Liturgical Mirror,” in the wonderful new anthology The Sacred Encounter: Jewish Perspectives on Sexuality, and “Ruach Acheret-Ruach HaKodesh: Different Spirit-Sacred Spirit” in Torah Queeries: Weekly Commentaries on the Hebrew Bible.
She was the spiritual leader of the queer flagship Congregation Sha’ar Zahav from 2000-2015, where she edited and contributed to a radically inclusive prayer book, Siddur Sha’ar Zahav.
Her primary interests lie in being a mother and a loving companion while balancing the weight of the world and attempting to make forward progress on all matters concerning equality and justice — personal, communal, national, and global.
