my journey

Kohenet Sarah Tziporah is a current rabbinical student and ordained Kohenet (Hebrew Priestess). She is a trained herbalist and specializes in healing, altar-work, spiritual counseling, and open-tent hospitality. She helps facilitate the discovery of open portals in wilderness through courageous ritual leadership, wilderness skills, and fierce boundary-tending.

Kohenet Sarah Tziporah received her BA from Bryn Mawr College in English Literature. Following her graduation, she trained in permaculture and social justice as a Fellow at Urban Adamah in Berkeley, California. She has been a teacher of Religious School, focusing on nature-based curricula and Jewish meditation for many years. She served the Bay-Area nonprofit Wilderness Torah as a volunteer manager, development assistant, and event organizer helping to put on large-scale immersive camping festivals around Jewish holidays. She received foundational certification in the practice of Herbal Medicine from the Ohlone Herbal Center in Berkeley, California. Sarah Tziporah studied for over four years with the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute in Northern California and was ordained as a Kohenet Hebrew Priestess in 2018. She is now working toward her Masters of Rabbinic Studies at the Academy of Jewish Religion, California.

Her work tends portals of birth, death, and all crossings-over, loving through grief and inviting sacred silence, lifting up those she touches with heart-centered receiving and true genuine presence. Sarah Tziporah tends portals with Gevurah (holy boundaries) and Chesed (lovingkindess), embodying wisdom and sovereignty through empathic, allied, and loving resource in all acts of reaching into the beyond.
