Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes life is confusing.
Sometimes, you just need someone to talk to: enter the rabbis.
The Bronfman Center has two full-time rabbis on staff, plus a rabbinic intern. Reach out- they would love to take you for coffee.

Ordained from HUC-JIR, the seminary of the Reform movement, Rabbi Nikki DeBlosi is passionately dedicated to pluralist Judaism, feminism, and LGBTQ rights. She holds a BA in Women’s Studies from Harvard University and both an MA and a PhD in Performance Studies from NYU. She has taught in the Religious Studies, Performance Studies, and Expository Writing Departments at NYU and loves both formal and informal teaching. While she works intimately with the Reform and Queer Jewish communities, Rabbi Nikki also oversees the “big picture” and visioning for Shabbat and holidays here at the Bronfman Center. A convert to Judaism, Rabbi Nikki is particularly happy to discuss spiritual change, doubts, and questions… but she’s also happy to talk pop culture, science fiction, HBO’s Girls, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Game of Thrones. Rabbi Nikki lives in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, with her wife Rachel and their sons, Ilan and Ethan.
