As I mentioned elsewhere, I am a passionate teacher of Judaism with demonstrated ability to educate, motivate and direct students while maintaining high interest and achievement. I am an articulate and captivating speaker, conveying the beauty and nobility of Judaism, its values and traditions, to those seeking deeper engagement with Jewish learning while also serving as an ambassador of Judaism to the broader community.
