I am an
independent, liberal Rabbi in Vancouver, BC, Canada. 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), although I did
most of my rabbinic training through the rabbinic studies program of
Aleph: Alliance for Jewish Renewal. Currently I am the Rabbi of Sh’ar
Harim in Whistler, BC and the Chaplain of the Jewish Chaplaincy Society.
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.
