Leiah Moser.

Leiah Moser found her way to Judaism after a year spent reading Jewish books in her off-hours whilst teaching English in Japan. The years since then have been an ongoing process of immersing herself ever more deeply in the texts and traditions of her adopted people, a process which ultimately led to her becoming a student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. When she’s not busy doing rabbi stuff, she is generally writing or painting. Her work can be found on her blog, Dag Gadol, as well as in the upcoming anthology Faithfully Feminist.
