     For Rabbi Margaret Frisch Klein, the dream of becoming a rabbi, according to a note that her eighth grade teacher wrote, began with her Bat Mitzvah. A college Simchat Torah celebration was so full of joy and life that she called her parents and told them she wanted to be a rabbi to bring that kind of joy to other people.  
   Her dream of being a rabbi took a back seat as life intervened. Although always active in the Jewish and wider community, she worked as the educational director in four Hebrew schools and as a marketing consultant for high technology companies. Eventually she enrolled in The Academy for Jewish Religion, with its commitment to pluralism and second-career students, provided a viable path to the rabbinate.
  The reason to pursue this dream was to continue her work on social justice issues. She sees her role in the rabbinate as being a bridge builder and peacemaker, explaining Judaism to the outside world.
  She brings to the rabbinate her commitment of building a community that is warm and welcoming, non-judgmental and a safe place for everyone to explore their Judaism, engaging people where they are and helping them find meaning in our modern world. In addition to the rabbinate, she has owned her own consulting business and blogs as the Energizer Rabbi, for the joy of Judaism that keeps going and going and going. She welcomes all questions and is accessible by email, cell phone, in the office, or somewhere else.
   She and her husband Simon and daughter Sarah enjoy cooking, reading, interfaith dialogue, Habitat for Humanity and theater.
