Rev. Theresa “Rivka” Gevurtz is an interfaith minister, chaplain and spiritual director, ordained through The Chaplaincy Institute in 2018 and earning her MDiv. at Starr King School for the Ministry in 2019. Rivka’s area of focus is addressing the ways religious wounding impacts not only the queer community but the society at large. Her ministry is influenced by the social justice commitment of her Jewish tradition, faith-based advocacy for the LGBTQ community, as well as by the contemplative and mystical traditions and Reiki energy healing. She is currently working on a book about her family’s journey; as a bi-woman, married to a trans-man and parent of a gender-fluid young adult. She is available for companioning your spiritual journey, celebrating life’s liminal and lifecycle moments, and holding sacred witness as you make meaning of your life.
