What do I love most about my work? I love being a part of people’s lives the during the key moments when they are figuring out who they want to be in the world and infusing Judaism into those moments. Building those relationships and commitments are what sustain me in my work. It is what makes me excited to go into work every day.
How is Judaism valuable in my life? Judaism is not something we do or a box we can check to say we’ve fulfilled our duty. It is a way of life and of being in the world. Living Jewishly is about pursuing justice and making change in the world around us in order to better ourselves and our communities.
