Ana Levy-Lyons

Minister of the Week at the 2019 International Affairs Conference

The Reverend Ana Levy-Lyons serves as senior minister of First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn. She is the author of No Other Gods: The Politics of the Ten Commandments, which reintroduces the Ten Commandments as practices for spiritual liberation and political resistance. She is a contributing editor for Tikkun magazine and has just finished writing a guide to preaching about climate change and ecological consciousness for the Center for Earth Ethics and The Climate Reality Project.

Ana lives on the upper west side of Manhattan with her husband Jeff and eight-year-old twins, Miriam and Micah, who are all excited to be joining her on the island. She writes, “I’m thrilled to be coming to Star Island to spend a week with all of you. The natural beauty and elemental power of the island are a perfect setting for opening our hearts to the world around us. I hope we can all use our worship time together and our private meditation and prayer time to reground ourselves in our connections with the earth, sea, and sky.”
