General Philosophy of Learning
Since the time I was a high school student, my passion as it relates to learning was to teach throughout the generations. One of the hardest questions for me to answer is: which age do I enjoy teaching the most? The honest truth is that I love teaching all ages, and part of the joy of being a rabbi is that I have the opportunity to do so.
By the time I was a college student, I was already teaching the youngest to the oldest of Jews, and all ages in between. My connection to nursery school students and tots allows me to view the world with newness and excitement. My interest in teaching children reminds me of the many questions and answers we seek each and every day. My passion for teaching teens has long allowed me to dig deep into Judaism's depth and breadth of literature and expose it to the minds most interested in learning.
As I have engaged with adults, I have watched Judaism come alive in new and different ways. I have taught a wide range of topics and venues, utilizing as many opportunities as possible to help bring Judaism alive and to greater depths for adults of all ages and stages of life.
A great passion of mine is to engage families in education and Jewish experiences. Family education of all kinds is crucial to empowering families in order to continue their Jewish educational journey together.
As I vision the future of Jewish education, it involves Jews and non-Jews of all ages, studying together to allow Judaism to bring light to their future.
