I grew up in a Reform Jewish household in St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated Cum Laude from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and majored in Political Science. I was ordained at Leo Baeck College in 1980. Since then, I have served pulpits in England, Canada, and the United States. I visited Refuseniks in the former Soviet Union in the 1980s. Since my return to the North America in 1984, I have been heavily involved in outreach and interfaith activity.
I am married and have two children. My daughter is at the University of Pennsylvania and is majoring in Middle East studies. My son is currently enrolled at Solomon Schechter High School.
