Rabbi Shira StutmanRabbi Shira Stutman
Scholar-in-Residence, Heart to Heart Women’s Mission to Israel

Rabbi Shira Stutman, director of Jewish programming at Washington, D.C.’s innovative Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, was named one of America’s Most Inspiring Rabbis by the Jewish Forward in 2013 and a Woman to Watch by Jewish Women International in 2014. And, most recently, she was featured by Tablet magazine in a round-up of notable rabbis in 2015. At Sixth & I, she and her colleagues strive to create a spiritually connected, reflective, intellectually challenging, and engaging Jewish community for the area’s large millennial population.

When not at Sixth & I, Rabbi Stutman serves as the scholar-inresidence for the National Women’s Philanthropy program of the Jewish Federations of North America, teaches for the Wexner Heritage program, and is board chair of Jews United for Justice. She also speaks nationally on the topics of post-tribal Judaism, creating meaningful Jewish programming for people in their 20s and 30s, working with and supporting interfaith couples, and creating a welcoming Jewish community. Rabbi Stutman
graduated from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in 2007, where she was a Wexner Graduate Fellow.

She is also a proud graduate of the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Maryland. She is married to Russell Shaw and is the mother of Caleb, Ma’ayan, and Natalia.
