Welcome!

The power of our wounds. The magic of internal multiplicity. The untold history of Jewish women. The wonder of gender diversity. The call of the Divine in our life today. In writings, lectures, and spiritual services, Jericho welcomes people into exploration of these transformative arenas of spiritual life.

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. They have been named to the Jewish Week’s 36 Under 36 and to The Forward’s Forward 50. Jericho holds a master's degree in Public Policy from Harvard University, where they were a Pforzheimer Fellow. Trained as an IFS coach, they are currently a Wexner Fellow and a rabbinical candidate.
