My Story

My professional experiences in the Jewish non-profit world allowed me to connect adults and teens to our Jewish tradition in meaningful ways. My career path took me to synagogues, Jewish high schools, camps, and international organizations. In all of those environments, I was successful in raising an awareness of the ways in which our Jewish tradition offers tools for living one's best life. It was my privilege to see the impact different programs, courses, and talks had on participants through my unique approach to education---combining text study with questions of spiritual and personal meaning. My educational background: an MA in Counseling from NYU and B.A. degrees in Fine Arts (some of my work is below) and Psychology. My current academic work is in pursuing a doctorate in Jewish Education from Gratz College.
 
I am grateful to HaShem that through this Jewish educational platform, I am able to bring my unique style of Jewish education to a broader audience. My interests in spiritual work, creative, artistic and experiential expression, writing, counseling, and facilitating are able to find a home. The courses and speaking topics I develop are part of an expression of Inner Judaism. I hope that through this work you will experience the beauty of our tradition and that I will get to meet you.          

WHY STUDY? 

Engaging in study is fulfilling a Jewish obligation, a mitzvah. When you increase your wisdom, you sensitize yourself and grow from the experience. So, not only are you growing closer to God, you are reaching deeper parts within yourself.
