About the Michael Jay Kinsler Rainmaker Award

In 2014, the Rainmaker Award was renamed in honor of Michael Jay Kinsler. Michael was an active member of gay and lesbian founded Congregation Bet Haverim. He dedicated his life to ensuring that gay and lesbian Jews had a place to worship where they could find solace and pride. We hope to honor Michael’s legacy of inclusion and action for years to come.
