People say that I am a thoughtful and sincere individual who plays well with others. Family, living a healthy life style, religious and cultural association, and my job as a teacher are extremely important to me. I grew up in a Conservative Jewish household where we kept kosher but were less-observant with some of the other esoteric aspects of our faith. I would describe myself as traditional Conservative. I like to rollerblade, run, hike, bicycle, and ski. My less-strenuous pursuits include visits with family and friends, plays, art shows, reading, or just watching a good movie.
