What do you love most about your work? I love being a part of a synagogue whose members really care and have a sense of ownership of our community– AND I love being able to do out reach through Next Dor and help young Jewish professionals in DC find a place for themselves in that community. We are serious about learning and serious about not taking ourselves too seriously.

How is Judaism valuable in your life? I became a rabbi so I could live professionally the way I strive to live my life personally, and so I could share that in service to the Jewish people.
