Describe your career in one sentence.
Creating a center for Jewish life in the heart of Boston. Our motto is, “You don’t have to join because you already belong.”
What was your favorite way to give back this year?
We launched Urbanites Boston—a young professional community that unites Jews of all backgrounds and levels of observance.
Just a few of my fun facts are…
- My passions are teaching and learning. I believe learning is very powerful in creating and uniting a diverse community through the study of our intellectual birthright, the Torah.
- I had the privilege of teaching on 6 out of 7 continents.
