My rabbinate is driven by two passions: my love of working with people in a vibrant and rich community, and a deep desire to create opportunities for people to enhance their Jewish lives. I look forward to working with each Bet Haverim member, creating a sense of teamwork and a passionate community, alive with Judaism. I am excited about teaching – opening doors to the spiritual, cultural and historical traditions that make Judaism so rich. I believe that we all possess the power to make a difference in the world and in people’s lives, and that Judaism provides the sacred tools to accomplish our tasks. I hope you will join us.
The essence of Judaism is the ongoing dialogue that we have with our God. This is a conversation that has animated the Jewish people for centuries; exciting, challenging and even frustrating, but always necessary, nurturing us as Jews and human beings. Out of this conversation grows our sense of who we are as individuals and as a people – our values, our history and our convictions.
As your rabbi, I hope to become partners with you in this age-old dialogue as we explore what it means to be a Jewish community today. We are not in search of specific answers, for God allows us to hear the divine word in diverse ways. Rather, we strive simply to participate in the conversation of Judaism.
