Profile

I believe in the importance of continuing professional education to spiritually, emotionally and intellectually enrich myself and others by continually updating my knowledge in the professional and academic rabbinate. I am of the opinion that what I learned in years of formal schooling are the necessary basic skills, but that continuing professional education will enable me to better serve my spiritual community while also furthering my career interests, especially with the rapid changes and advancements in technology that demand a more sophisticated and educated approach to Jewish life.
