Rabbi Ilana Zietman

Community Rabbi

Rabbi Ilana loves meeting new people and creating real and meaningful connections with them. As GatherDC’s Community Rabbi, she is thrilled that she gets to meet young Jews all over the city. She loves exploring Jewish ideas that are relevant and alive for people in their 20’s and 30’s. Rabbi Ilana is excited to help people find their own unique connections to Judaism and Jewish life and create new expressions that are so needed today. She can’t wait to continue Gather’s work of creating spaces where people can question, explore, laugh, grow and find themselves and community. Whether you are new to DC or have been here for a while, Rabbi Ilana would love to meet you and is here to talk, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to her.

When Rabbi Ilana isn’t officially Gathering, she can be found cooking in her kitchen, practicing yoga, going on hikes, desperately searching for good pizza in DC (seriously, help her find some!) and watching a lot of tv.
