I am a "second career" rabbi, having worked for many years in business. I was ordained in 2011 after 4 years of intensive study. I was trained in the traditions of both Reform and Conservative Judaism. I served for 5 years as the second rabbi at a large independent synagogue in New Jersey, partly while studying for ordination, and was also its head of education. I am a member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the official Reform rabbinical association. I am now based in Central Florida and am working with families on weddings and other life cycle events. I have officiated at many weddings and am flexible concerning the type of ceremony. I meet with each couple that I marry several times to get to know them and understand their needs and wishes so we can personalize their ceremony.
