I was born in South America to parents who fled Europe at the beginning of World War II. From an early age, I was exposed to my father’s work building bridges with different segments of the Jewish Community as well as his pioneer efforts to further relations within the multi-faith community of Uruguay where I grew up. I was inspired by his work and decided to pursue a rabbinic career that would extend our family’s rabbinic dynasty dating back to the 16th century.
I have lived in five different countries in Latin America as well as in the United States, and have a wealth of experience in working with individuals of all ages and all ethnicities. It is my firm belief that conveying an understanding of the rich tapestry of the Jewish religion and tradition to people raised in an environment with little or no knowledge of it, is a transformative experience. My goal is to work with you to capture the essence of this journey, so that it may result in a meaningful and everlasting part of your identity.
