I love being a cheerleader for innovation! I love being in relationships and conversations with people who are really striving to make a difference in people’s lives. I love that I get to challenge myself and learn new things every day. I love that I have the privilege of being a part of a rich Jewish tradition of spirituality, texts and learning AND also to plan for and work toward the Jewish Future! All in the company of amazing colleagues!
