This past year I have worked in two microscopy and imaging labs at UCLA. One was in the department of Physics and Astronomy and that other was at Californian Nano Systems Institute (C(N)SI) at UCLA.

My wife and I came from families that were very charitable, but not involved in education. However, we certainly learned the value of philanthropy.

I started out majoring in psychology and accident started teaching, and I loved it! So I dropped everything, changed my major, and the rest is history. The truth is, it’s a privilege to teach.

I think being a Builder of Jewish education is about laying the foundation for others to build on top of. I love the work that I get to do here, working with other educators to provide support, and working with teens.

We always felt Jewish education was important. It started with our oldest child in nursery school. We knew we wanted to choose a place that would help in forming Jewish identity. When it was time to join a temple, we looked for a place with a good, strong religious school. In those days, there were not many day schools, so this was an important decision.
