In My Life

Welcome to my website!

I am an independent, liberal Rabbi living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Currently I serve as the Chaplain of the Jewish Chaplaincy Society and as the Jewish Chaplain for the federal prisons in the Pacific region of Canada.

I am available for life cycle ceremonies, teaching and spiritual counselling. Many of the people I have worked with do not belong to synagogues or have needs that cannot be met in most synagogue settings. For example, I officiate at interfaith and same-sex wedding ceremonies. I believe that everyone should have access to their traditions regardless of the directions our lives sometimes take.

I‘m a long time member of the Jewish Renewal Community Or Shalom in Vancouver. My ordination is from the Modern Rabbi Program of the Rabbinic Seminary International in New York City (Rabbi Joseph Gelberman z‘l), although I did most of my rabbinic training through the rabbinic studies program of Aleph: Alliance for Jewish Renewal.
