About Me:

I am a spirited, educated individual who is looking forward to the next chapter of my professional career.  

Following college, I began studying to be a Rabbi and an attorney.  Since graduating Rutgers University School of Law in Newark in 2002, I have practiced law at the Law Offices of Jan Meyer.  I received my rabbinic ordination (Smikhah) in 2004 from the Institute of Traditional Judaism (AKA "The Metivta"), part of the Union for Traditional Judaism (UTJ). Since receiving s'mikha (Rabbinic ordination) in 2004, I served as Rabbi of Temple Israel of Long Beach, New York for six years.

My educational experiences provide me with a breadth of knowledge and skills that can be an asset to any organization. I have practical experience in working with synagogues, organizations, and businesses. My experience as a congregational Rabbi, member of the Union for Traditional Judaism Board of Directors, and Chairperson of the Union for Traditional Judaism Conference Committee and Planning Committee provide me with extensive experience in event planning, organizational development, and resource management. I have experience working with youth in Hebrew School, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and youth group settings.

My experience as a practicing attorney has honed my intellectual skills and provided valuable real-world experience.  My legal practice has concentrated on insurance law and insurance subrogation, which has given me the opportunity to litigate matters including personal injury, contract disputes, and malpractice.

Although I am happily and fully employed, I am interested in other opportunities, particularly in the Jewish community. This position may highlight my rabbinc and/or cantorial abilities, but would benefit from each facet of my skills and experiences.  Examples of positions of interest include pulpits (Traditional Conservative, Orthodox), education, youth gruop, college, nonprofit organizations, etc. I offer a pleasant voice and a joyful spirit that I believe enhances tefillah (prayer) and engages a community. Serving a community's religious needs is a deeply meaningful gift, and I cherish any opportunity I get to do so. I am happy to do so in a rabbinic, cantorial, or hybrid capacity. I am also happy to participate in alternative services such as teen minyanim and "learner's" services. I am available for part-time or high-holiday pulpits, including per-diem engagements, "guest rabbi/cantor," vacation replacement, etc. and am willing to travel.
