I never planned on committing my life to Jewish education - now, I can’t imagine doing anything else. With every thoughtful, passionate young person that passes through our school, I further understand the importance of nurturing a new generation of Jewish difference-makers.

For me, “building” an educational product connotes two phases. The first – tapping into the collective imagination in dreaming up the maximal learning environment for our students. The second – setting about the actualization of those dreams, figuring out the nuts and bolts required to make the abstract tangible. In other words, from brainstorms to balance sheets. I view myself as a “Connector.” I enjoy meeting individuals, discovering their idiosyncratic set of skills, and bringing them together with other individuals to work towards a shared vision.
