Why did you become a spiritual leader and what do you love about Judaism?

I am an Interfaith spiritual leader and musical prayer leader with Kehilla community synagogue. I believe that song and prayer is a vehicle for transformation and that we need to be in community to heal and liberate ourselves and the world. I am moved to serve moments of transition from rite of passage of B’Mitzvah to end of life support.

Are there specific populations, age groups, or folks at a certain life stage who you love working with? 

End of Life and other life transitions and passages.

What services do I offer?

  • Funerals/memorial services
  • Weddings/partnership rituals
  • Spiritual guidance/counseling
  • Adult B’nai mitzvah
  • Interfaith weddings
  • Co-officiating with another spiritual leader
