In the past nine years as a rabbi for Congregation Beth Torah of Torrance, CA, I have built close ties with the local Muslim, Christian and Hindu communities. I specialize in crafting personalized and meaningful services, infused with spirituality.
I also work with those wanting to convert to Judaism and have sat on several Beit Dins to finalize conversions. I have a BA in Hebrew literature from Yeshiva University's LA campus in 1986 and ordination from RSI in NYC in 2003, having studied closely with Rabbi Joseph Gelberman, z"l.
