Three Fast Facts
1. I’m excited to be learning to play the baritone horn. My family is less excited… and our cats are just running for cover.
2. I lived in Cleveland, Ohio for eleven months. It was was just long enough to meet some of my closest life long friends, and learn that the city has many wonderful attributes of people, arts, and culture. Hope they keep moving forward with a culturally sensitive new name and mascot for the baseball team. Go Cleveland!
3. Huge fan of the concept of world peace where the only wars that still exist are cupcake wars.

What I do at CBI
I lead and co-create a school that provides a supportive community and spiritual connectedness; a school community that teaches our children and families both to live Jewish lives and to gain Jewish knowledge.
