Describe your career in one sentence.
As a rabbi, I interrupt people's lives with moments of meaning, connection and liberation.
What was your favorite way to give back this year?
I started Unorthodox Celebrations in order to match unaffiliated Jews with rabbis and cantors to perform their life-cycle events.
What other organizations, boards, charities, etc. are you a part of?
- Teva Learning Center's Leadership Counsel
- 2015 CJP PresenTense Fellow
Just a few of my fun facts are…

- I led Kol Nidrei Services at Occupy Wall Street in NYC.
- I have taught hitbodedut—a form of Jewish meditation—to over 1,000 people.
