Why I'm Here. . .

'I am passionate about Judaism, and I see myself clearly devoted to the Jewish education of young children and their families. My passion is part of my DNA my Great Grandfather was an orthodox Rabbi in Boyle Heights and my Great Grandmother the founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Hadassah. They immigrated here from Russia, escaping from the pogams. I was raised and nurtured in a Jewish home where Jewish values were embraced and modeled for me."

Other Things I Love

"I love, spending time with my husband of 45 years and my family including my to granddogs, taking care of my Mother, Tot Shabbat on Friday morning, Passover Seder, Hanukkah, learning, travel, reading, photography, scrapbooking, hiking, Yosemite, and going to the beach. "
