I am a native of Evanston, Illinois, and an eighth generation rabbi. I grew up in Israel, where I served as a tank gunner in the IDF Armored Corps, attended Yeshivat Sha’alvim, one of the most prominent institutions of higher Jewish learning in Israel, for seven years, and received my rabbinic ordination from the Chief Rabbis of Israel. I hold a B.A. in History from Thomas Edison State College, and an M.S. in Educational Leadership from Walden University.
I have served in religious, educational and communal leadership positions on three continents since my teens, specifically in Israel, New Zealand and the United States. Since 2014, I have served as the Senior Development and Communications Director of the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance (MDHA).
Though I used to be Orthodox, I now see myself as a Jewish secular humanist. As such, I deeply believe in helping every couple make the most out of the most wonderful day of their lives. Since 2008, I have officiated over 500 weddings. I will travel anywhere you need me to go (in the U.S. or abroad) to officiate at your interfaith wedding, and help make your special day truly wonderful.
I have always seen myself, first and foremost, as a learner. I love working with my couples, and I feel like I learn so much from them! In fact, my personal remarks at every wedding focus on what I learned from that specific couple. I encourage you to visit my blog Wise Student, where I discuss these important lessons.
Having lived, since my return to the United States, in Overland Park, Kansas, Toledo, Ohio and Dallas, Texas, I now live in beautiful Frisco, Texas, a northern suburb of Dallas.
