I am Jewish by birth, but I came to Judiasm as an adult. I taught myself Hebrew and have been teaching other adults for about 20 years. I have been a member of Kol Tzedek in West Philadelphia since it started about seven years ago. I do not practice kosher, but enjoy food of all kinds and enjoy cooking. I am very progressive and have been an activist most of my life. Right now I am active in the Granny Peace Brigade, Philadelphia. I divorced my husband many years ago. I have three grown children and one grandson. My partner of 6 years died in March of 2012. I want to share my life with someone who is honest, caring, and kind. The simple, everyday things are what I miss most.
