Rabbi Jill Jacobs, Director of Education for the Jewish Funds for Justice.

In this session, Rabbi Jacobs will explore some Jewish approaches to issues relating to low wage workers, wages, employment conditions, and unions and will consider the responsibilities of Jewish employers toward their workers. This session is based on a teshuva (legal response) on living wage and unions that Rabbi Jacobs has brought before the Conservative Movement's Committee on Jewish Law and Standards (the "Law Committee").

Rabbi Jill Jacobs received rabbinic ordination and an MA in Talmud/Rabbinics from the Jewish Theological Seminary, where she was a Wexner Fellow. She was recently named to the Forward 50, the Forward newspaper's annual list of fifty influential American Jews.
