I love to teach and give talks. I love to engage with and soak up the wisdom of our Jewish tradition and bring the texts alive, making them meaningful and relevant to our lives and our world today. (I also love telling people what I really think!) I love to help people discover their own voices within Judaism. There is such richness in our past, such possibility for our future.
I enjoy teaching adults and college or university students. I teach in classrooms, on retreats, on panels, and in casual settings. My goal is for students and audience members to leave feeling nourished, enlivened, inspired, and eager for more.
I would love to visit your community, chavurah, gathering or classroom whether for an engaging keynote address, as a member of an interfaith panel, to give Words of Torah, teach classes, or make presentations. Let us celebrate together the rich beauty and immediacy of our tradition!
I am happy to address a wide range of Jewish topics. I also have some special areas of expertise that might be exciting to you: The Beauty of Shabbat, The Power of Blessings, Torah Texts, Issues in the Talmud, Women’s Voices, The Book of Job, The Niggun (wordless melody) as Spiritual Practice, A Taste of Piyyut (prayer poem), and Reb Zalman on “Rebbe-craft”.
