Albany gets first female student rabbi

For the first time, Albany has a female student rabbi. She says she feels right at home.

Kelly Levy has been at Temple B'Ani Israel off of Gillionville Road for about a month.

She still goes back and forth to New York for school. And she says she has a favorite part about worship in Albany.

"It's getting to know the congregation and knowing that I have a community here," Levy said. "I go to school in New York City and it's very crowded and bustling with people. And, I come down here and it's a very warm, comforting feeling to be here and be a part of this community."

She says 99 percent of congregations around the country are used to having women as clergy.
