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.
