I am in the rabbinical program at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. I was born in lower Michigan and got my B.A. in Spanish from Northern Michigan University in the Upper Peninsula.
I was active in my college Hillel, where I served as president and participated in community theater. After graduating, I spent a few months as an English teaching assistant in Galicia, Spain.
Upon returning to the Midwest, I have served on Temple Beth Sholom‘s board in Ishpeming, Mich., focusing on student relations.
In 2012, I relocated to Chicago, where I interned at Bradley Hillel downstate and studied Talmud at the S&M Bet Midrash and with Svara, a traditional yet radical yeshiva. I also spent two summers as Judaics director at JCC Camp Sabra in Rocky Mount, Mo.
I loved spending this past year in Israel with my HUC class, but I am excited to have the opportunity to learn and celebrate with the community of United Hebrew Congregation.
Student Rabbi Kylynn Perdue-Bronson will serve UHC Terre Haute throughout the 2017-18 academic year.
