Author, Rabbi, Jewish Educator

Welcome!  I am delighted that you have visited my website. Through my books, I hope to share the traditions and joys of Judaism with children, teens and their parents.

I am also the Director of Congregational Learning at Congregation Har Shalom in Potomac, MD. I was ordained in 1997 from Hebrew Union College in New York City.  I have worked at Jewish camps, led more Jewish retreat weekends than I can count, and enjoy teaching pre-school students, senior adults and everybody in between.  I love doing author visits and writing workshops.  

I grew up in Columbia, MD, and graduated the University of Michigan. I got my professional start working at advocacy groups in Washington, DC.

I am married to David Cohen - a journalist.   We are joyfully raising three children - Arianna, Jesse and Ezra. We live in Rockville, MD, where I serve on the city's Human Rights Commission. Please be in touch.  It would be great to hear from you.
