A Conversation with Refresh Your Soul Speaker Rabbi Abie Ingber

Refresh Your Soul 2019 Speaker Rabbi Abie Ingber sat down with us and answered a few of our questions.

ERS: We’re riding on an elevator. You have 1 minute to tell me your story. What is it?

RABBI: Just like everybody else, I was born before I was born. I inherited the Holocaust experiences of my parents, even though I was born in freedom, and here in America. I served for 30 years at the University of Cincinnati, retired once, then served for a decade at Xavier, and retired a second time. Now, I am pursuing projects that I am really excited about, and serving as Rabbi-in-Residence at the Episcopal Christ Church Cathedral. I am very eager to be one of the presenters at the Refresh Your Soul Conference on March 18 at the Cintas Center at Xavier.
