Celebrant. Speaker. Friend.

Greetings and thanks for coming to my website. I’m Rabbi Patrick. I’m a spiritual, but non-traditional, spiritual seeker and facilitator. Here you’ll find a little about myself, my approach to Judaism, speaking engagements and services.

I was ordained by Rabbinical Seminary International, a progressive rabbinical school in Manhattan, founded by the late Rabbi Joseph Gelberman. Additionally, I am a Prepare Enrich certified premarital and relationship coach as well as a Psychological First Aid provider, and have recently completed a certificate in Spirituality, Health and Healing through Clayton State University.

I have had the pleasure of writing/editing several books including Ahavah Rabbah, PunkTorah: The First Anthology and the NewKosher Vegan Cookbook, as well as countless articles for blogs such as PunkTorah and My Jewish Learning.

I have been featured in three books, The New Reform Judaism: Challenges and Reflections, Contemporary American Judaism: Transformation and Renewal, Oy Oy Oy Gevalt!: Jews and Punk, as well as the Times of Israel, the Atlanta Jewish Times, and several other Jewish newspapers, magazines and blogs.

I live in North Druid Hills, Georgia with my amazing wife Stefanie and our grumpy, old cat Jasmine.

I am available to answer your questions and to help you on life’s journey, so feel free to email me anytime.
