    "She'll become the first African-American woman ever to be ordained as a rabbi and the first African-American rabbi to lead a majority white congregation, according to the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion."

    As soon as I saw the headline, I thought, "Reform Movement and in the South."

    *Checks Article*

    Yup.

    so this is interesting, being jewish, i first clicked on it thinking what state this is happening in...

    then was shocked to see it was in NC, ok then i got curious as to which city it was. My synagogue is in raleigh, but i go to school in greenville..

    Keep reading, and find out this is happening in Greenville, and i was blown away, i'm happy for her, but honestly this entire town is toooo christian, there are very few jews, let alone black ones.. so this excites me, i might have to go see her in person!
