Keynote Speaker

Rabbi Bonnie Lawrence, J.D.

Rabbi Bonnie Lawrence, J.D.

We are so very excited to bring to you Rabbi Bonnie Lawrence. She is definitely not your traditional Rabbi given the fact that she is a woman. Rabbi Bonnie will speak passionately about the Journey to Freedom found from understanding the spiritual symbolism within the story of the Passover.

 Her talk title is:
"The Spiritual Meaning of Passover: Why the 40 years of wandering? Were the People really lost?"

Rabbi Bonnie, also known as the Leadership Mastery Speaker™, is the founder and CEO of The Leader-ship Mastery Institute. The company is dedicated to providing training, consulting, coaching and materials to help others meet the challenge of their leadership roles in life. Everyone is a leader in their own lives. Why not be the best?

Rabbi Bonnie graduated from UCLA, and Wittier College School of Law. In 2013 Rabbi Bonnie was ordained by The Jewis Spiritual Leaders Institute based in New York. She is available for officiating at all life cycle events including Interfaith weddings. She also provides pastoral care counseling and is available for public speaking engagements.
