Personal statement

Shalom! I am an educator, rabbi, mom and founder of The Multitudes. I rabbi ‘off the bimah’ and most enjoy helping folks connect to their Jewish values, find healing and meaning in Jewish practice, and making our Jewish communities safe and comfortable for folks who have felt excluded. As a human, I’ve had to find my footing in the Jewish world without losing touch with vital parts of my identity. I have navigated re-shaping my Jewish identity post marriage and again post divorce. As a single mother and co-parent with former partners who have different beliefs, I know that finding one’s own anchors amidst the storms of life can be an adventure.

The selection of a mentor is important as we will guide you through several seasons of your life as you start to walk through the world Jewishly. I look forward to helping you discover the parts of yourself that will become the “tent poles” of your Jewish life. I can’t wait to meet you!
