Meet Rabbi Kolton Ph.D. or as she prefers… Tamara

Tamara began her career as the first person ordained a humanistic rabbi, an achievement recognized by The New York Times. She is a Ph.D; licensed psychotherapist and ordained rabbi.

She led the very congregation where she grew up and was the successor to Rabbi Sherwin Wine, the founder of Humanistic Judaism. After ten years as the senior rabbi, she felt intensely drawn toward the Feminine Divine. Out of her research and personal experiences, she pioneered an interfaith approach to access Feminine Divine energy and rewrite the myth of Eve.

If you ask her, she will tell you that far from a sinner, Eve is the Mother of Spiritual Bravery and a manifestation of Feminine Divine energy.

Tamara considers herself a truthteller and a disrupter of patriarchal lies.

Rabbi Kolton is a sought-after ceremonialist who has conducted hundreds of weddings and funerals. She considers it the most profound honor of her life to be with people on the best and worst days of their lives. From babynamings to Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, and funerals, her life-work is a sacred ceremonial tapestry woven over 25 years that touches the hearts of thousands of people.

Recently, Tamara presented on the global stage at the worldwide conference for the International Women’s Forum, an invitation only network of the most accomplished women in the world to which she is also a member.

Tamara has a private practice as a therapist where she integrates spirituality and psychology to help people heal and live their very best lives.

Above all, Tamara believes that we are here on Earth so seemingly alone, yet so exquisitely bound together, to give and receive love.
