Author, 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.
