A bit about me...

I am a Jewish educator who, for the past 25 years, has worked in every capacity: from Religious School teacher, to Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor, to Director of Education and Director of Lifelong Learning. I have taught every age, from preschool to adults, both in Brazil and in the USA. For the past ten years, I have focused on teaching adults.


I have a Masters in Jewish Studies and a Doctorate in Jewish Education. I am part of the Hebrew University's Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning faculty, an adjunct professor at Gratz College, and the author of Pillars of Judaism, a two-year curriculum for adults, and a member of JNF's Speakers Bureau.


I am a frequent speaker at Jewish education conferences, synagogues and other Jewish organizations and work with Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz's Global Day of Jewish Learning as their Education Director. I am on the Board of Limmud North America and on the Executive Board of Gratz College.


I am proud to be a 2015 winner of the prestigious Covenant Award for Excellence in Jewish Education.
