I was ordained by the Academy for Jewish Religion, a pluralistic, transdenominational seminary. There I was blessed to study with cantorial and rabbinical students of the highest caliber and with a varied and challenging faculty. I learned to broaden my rational approach to religion and to develop an appreciation of the more spiritual dimension of things.
In stressful situations, I am the non-anxious presence. I have both the patience and the compassion necessary to listen well and to advise fairly when necessary. Much of what I say comes in the form of traditional stories from which a person seeking counsel may draw his or her own lessons.
