Holy Sparks! is built on the idea that we live in a transformative moment in time, when a new paradigm for spirituality is being explored. We transcend the limits of customary synagogues and congregations, expanding and fostering interconnections from a broad perspective.
Martin Buber wrote, "When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, G!d is the electricity that surges between them." We ARE those Holy Sparks!
As a liberal, progressive, welcoming, emergent, grassroots, Jewish-core-values-based community of spiritual seekers, we gather to spark the discussion, to make a difference in our lives and in the world!
Meet Our Rabbi
Rabbi and Spiritual Leader of Holy Sparks!
Called to spiritual leadership and pastoral work since I was six years old, I earned a B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Biblical Studies and was ordained as an interfaith chaplain at 23. Working as a counselor, I completed an M.S. in Health Planning and Administration, and later, an M.A. in Counseling. Certified as a para-Rabbi after Yeshiva studies, I went on to complete rabbinical seminary coursework in New York, receiving s’micha (rabbinical ordination) as a Modern Rabbi.
Throughout the years, I have worked in various pastoral, spiritual, and leadership capacities, including chaplain, Hebrew school teacher, b’nah mitzvah tutor, preacher, therapist in a private counseling practice, retreat and group facilitator, motivational speaker, and other various roles in nonprofit organizations and small groups.
Happily married and retired from full-time work, I am an independent Jewish Modern Rabbi with a passion for the depth of wisdom and multidimensional beauty of Judaism, serving individuals rather than a synagogue. I believe the future belongs to emergent, grassroots, pop up ventures, in all arenas of life.
I bring a positive voice of hopefulness, and the ability to work with people of many spiritual traditions, as well as those who are unaffiliated or questioning.
