Rabbi Bridget Wynne grew up culturally Jewish in an interfaith family, and is passionate about enabling people to engage in Jewish life in ways that speak to them. She directs Jewish Gateways, an organization that welcomes individuals and families to "come as they are," explore Jewish wisdom, spirituality, and celebration, and discover what is meaningful for them. She is excited to be serving Jews, their family members, and all others who are interested through this unique network of Jewish learning, celebration, and community. 

Rabbi Wynne grew up on the East Coast and in the Bay Area and attended the University of California at Berkeley. After graduation she worked in San Francisco as a community organizer on social justice issues, where she developed her skills in bringing people together based on their concerns and values. She attended rabbinic school in Jerusalem, Los Angeles, and Cincinnati, and was ordained by the Reform movement. After ordination she served as rabbi at Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles, and then at Congregation Shir Shalom in Sonoma, before founding Jewish Gateways.
She lives with her spouse and son in Albany, a small town just north of Berkeley in the East Bay.
