A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I am an independent, progressive rabbi, founder of Darshan Yeshiva and spiritual leader of Kehillah, a young, experimental Jewish community in RVA.

(I’m also the guy who introduced the chocolate fountain to the Passover seder. The world has never been the same.)

I provide lifecycle services including weddings, funerals, bar and bat mitzvah, conversion to Judaism. My role as a community leader is to put others first and to help them get to where they want to go, and where they wish to grow.

I live in the Fan with my wife Stefanie and our two cats Maggie and Toes. I love hiking the many beautiful parks of Virginia, watching way too much TV (especially these days), participating in social justice activities, cooking and spending time with my friends.
