I believe that involvement in Jewish professional associations is important for lighting the passion of the Jewish People in the service of God, Torah and Klal Yisrael, for strengthening the Conservative/Masorti movement and for maintaining oversight of the legitimate practice of the rabbinic profession. Through involvement in professional organizations I develop relationships with rabbis in other the congregations, communal institutions and organizations to enhance Jewish life. In this way, I can further my professional interests and the public interest. A strong supporter of Israel and Zionist activities, my professional involvement includes serving on major national and international bodies working to strengthen Israel and Israel-Diaspora relations. It also includes ecumenical activities and promoting and supporting projects of tzedakah (charity), gemilut hesed (kindness) and social justice.
