As a woman who thrives on left wing activism, having a companion to share political pursuits, theatre workshops, concerts, song fests and ethic meals would enrich and enliven life. I believe, with Margaret Meade, in the power of an individual to change the world--for the better. To that end, I am an urban educator teaching high school English and History while designing accommodations and modifications for special learners and speakers of other languages. Serving as a long time teacher in the Conservative religious school where I was raised fulfills my faith in "teaching diligently to your children." I am deeply rooted in Judaism. I adore chazzanut and Hebraic melodies. Singing and harmonizing are essential to my participatory role. Art museums and galleries, drama and dance, independent and foreign movies facinate me. I am a raging liberal, and active in peace groups and union activities. Being an outspoken and proud labor Zionist, I would love to return to Israel for her 60th anniversary. My two daughters are grown and active in the arts. I am the oldest of a large religious family, and cherish my Judaic heritage. There's so much more than meets the eye. Discovery is an adventure to be shared.
