Hello my name is Sandra Lawson. I am the first LGBTQ person of African-American descent accepted to the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, in Wyncote PA. I am raising money for my tuition for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year and I need help from the community to continue my education. My current tuition is about $20,000 and I am also applying for scholarships to help offset that cost but without this tuition I will not be able to fulfill my dream of being a rabbi and wanting to help create a welcoming Jewish community for all.
If you would like to know more about my journey to rabbinical school please check this out My Story
