I am a passionate and soulful woman who finds joy in sunshine, a sun salutation, Birchot HaShachar, a cup of coffee, and a gentle touch. I get excited about a handwritten note, a brilliant sunset, a phone call from a good friend, and seeing the rising moon. I have a zeal for learning, a hunger for spiritual connection, and a deep appreciation for music, good food, and artistic expression of many kinds. I am a sucker for a good cause and an advocate for justice and sustainability. I like kayaking, hiking, and lying in a hammock watching the clouds. I am a progressive thinker and a public radio junkie. I love to read and study with a partner. I am interested in understanding and preserving tradition while renewing Judaism to make it meaningful for myself and others.
