I’m an independent, progressive, post-denominational Rabbi who enjoys working with students from diverse religious, educational and family backgrounds. I have personally experienced the beauty, meaning, and transformative power of our tradition and rituals and want to share that experience with others. I believe that each of us must find her/his own unique connection to our tradition and create meaningful rituals to express that connection.
I became a rabbi later in life because I love working with people and enjoy accompanying them on their journey of spiritual discovery. Before becoming a Rabbi, I worked as a Jewish Educator, bar/bat mitzvah tutor, and adult Jewish educator. My role is to help others find their own unique and meaningful ways to unlock and open-up our shared traditions. If we work together, I will strive to listen to your hopes, dreams, and concerns about your spiritual journey. Together we will forge a path of spiritual discovery that weaves the traditions and rituals that are meaningful to you with your modern sensibilities.
I worked as an attorney and financial advisor for the majority of my working career. I have been married for 34 years, and we have two wonderful adult children. My wife and I love to travel, read, watch great movies and attend concerts, musicals, and lectures. Wishing you Be-Chatz-la-cha (Good Luck) on your journey.
