Welcome the
Stranger Within

In essays, lectures, spiritual services, and creative laboratories, Jericho invites people to reconnect with estranged parts of themselves, their communities, and their lineages. 
Raised in an ultra-Orthodox rabbinical home, Jericho learned from Buddhist, Sufi, and atheist communities before returning to Judaism to excavate timely wisdom from their family’s ancient traditions. They hold a master's degree in Public Policy from Harvard University, where they were a Pforzheimer Fellow. Certified in IFS coaching, they are currently a rabbinical candidate and a Wexner Fellow. Jericho is the author of the memoir Cut Me Loose. Their essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Daily Beast, and The Cut. For their work they have been named to the Jewish Week’s 36 Under 36 and to The Forward’s Forward 50. 

“You shall love the stranger, because you were strangers in the land of narrow places.”
