I am a warm, gentle, nurturing woman with many strengths and sensitivities. I am naturally intuitive, introspective, and spiritual, and value creativity; yet I am very practical and down to earth. I have fun, and am still challenged teaching music to young children. More recently I have discovered a love for gardening and also find myself more open to connecting with animals. I also enjoy baking, entertaining, and doing chesed. I am happiest in the warm weather in a tropical climate. My Jewish life is in flux somewhere between Egalitarian and Orthodox. I am interested in meeting a man who is serious about Judaism and committed to growing Jewishly. Prior to becoming observant I was involved in an egalitarian new age chaverah in the 80's, which I am becoming involved in again, now, as I really enjoy the warmth and spiritually in the services which I rarely find in a synagogue unless it is more like a shtiebel. Family is very important to me and I have a very haimische nature. And laughter..., I love to laugh...And loyal...yes I believe I am loyal and strive to be close to Hashem.
