Shutafim (a Hebrew word meaning “Associates”) is designed to assist small, isolated Jewish communities across the state through a strategy of empowerment and support.

The program provided spiritual support and pastoral care services to thousands of unaffiliated Jews. She is the author of Counting the Omer: A Kabbalistic Meditation Guide, which provides readers with a path through the 49 days of Counting the Omer, and includes meditations, exercises, kavvanot and activities for each of the days, according to the traditional pairings of the Sephirot.

Rabbi Kantrowitz received a prestigious Rabbis Without Borders Fellowship in 2012-2013. In 2006, she received the Jewish Federation of New Mexico’s “Woman of Valor”award in recognition of her “extraordinary efforts in sustaining and nurturing Jewish community life”.
