Ellen Lippmann seeks to include everyone in Judaism through her social justice work. After her ordination by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Lippmann served as East Coast director of MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, director of the Jewish Women's Program at the New 14th Street Y in Manhattan, the first social justice chair for the Women’s Rabbinic Network, and co-chair of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, where she is still a board member. Lippmann founded and continues to serve as rabbi at Kolot Chayeinu/Voices of Our Lives: Building a Progressive Jewish Community in Brooklyn, an LGBTQ-inclusive, nondenominational congregation. She also founded the Soup Kitchen at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and co-founded the Children of Abraham Peace Walk: Jews, Christians and Muslims Walking Together in Brooklyn in Peace.
