About Me

Rabbi, Teacher, Officiant...

I've spent my career creating meaningful connections with traditional and inspiring life moments. I'm available for Jewish, interfaith, same gender weddings. I will gladly co-officiate with a wonderful officiant of your choice. I'm also available for baby namings, b’nai mitzvah and funerals. If you’re not a member of a congregation, or your rabbis are unavailable and you’re looking for a dynamic rabbi to help create your special day, look no further. I'm the right spiritual leader for you and your family. 

I look forward to sharing in those memorable life moments in a way that is personal, warm, genuine, comfortable, natural and Jewish for you and your family.

I was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2005 and have officiated at over 172 weddings, named countless babies, and mourned with many families in their time of need throughout the Chicagoland area.
