Artist Statement

From my ordination in 1993, I primarily served as a rabbi in day schools until I took a sabbatical in 2008 to complete the manuscript of my first book, Found in Translation: Common Words of Uncommon Wisdom. After its publication, I began writing another book, teaching Torah and ceramics at Camp Ramah Darom and visiting communities as an author or rabbi-in-residence. While training with Rabbis Without Borders, I developed a strong sense of purpose as a teaching artist. I currently facilitate workshops on reading Jewish texts through a rabbi/artist’s lens and sharing personal interpretations through creation of multi-media, message-driven art.

Range of Work

Ceramics, Ritual Art, Torn Paper Midrash, Mixed-Media, Found-Object Sculpture
