Reinventing Jewish life for the 21st Century!Judaism is undergoing profound changes.I don’t bemoan the statistics that so many others view as prophesying doom.I welcome the new opportunities and new challenges.I am passionate about social justice, spiritual practice, building community, and radical inclusion.
How is Judaism valuable in your life? I became a rabbi to share the most meaningful moments in people’s lives.From simchas (joyful occasions) to sadness, I love to build meaningful relationships, one-on-one and in the community.I offer spiritual direction, pastoral care, meaningful learning, and personalized life cycle events.
