HI, I’M RABBI PATRICK
It’s so nice to meet you! I am a Richmond, VA based spiritual teacher and wedding officiant serving the DC area, Richmond and Virginia Beach. Learn More
I am a progressive rabbi, founder of Darshan Yeshiva and spiritual leader of Kehillah, a young, experimental Jewish community in RVA. I’m 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.
