Rabbi, Jewish Educator
Welcome! I am delighted that you have visited my website. I am
the author of Jewish children's books, a teen novel and a Purim shpiel based on Shakespeare. Through my Jewish
picture books, Jewish novel, and Purim shpiel, I hope to share the traditions and joy of Judaism.
I am also the Director
of Congregational Learning at Congregation Har Shalom in Potomac, MD. I was ordained in 1997 from Hebrew Union College in New York City. I
have worked at Jewish camps, led more Jewish retreat weekends than I can count, and enjoy teaching pre-school students, senior
adults and everybody in between. I enjoy doing author visits and writing workshops.
I grew up in Columbia,
MD, and graduated the University of Michigan. I am married to David Cohen - a journalist. We are joyfully raising
three children - Arianna, Jesse and Ezra. Please be in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
