San Luis Obispo County Rabbi
My path to becoming a singing rabbi has been a winding one, but isn't that the case with all spiritual journeys? I completed my undergraduate education at UCLA and received a Master's degree from USC but it was my connection to music that first took me to cantorial school where I formally trained with Cantors Nathan Lam and Perryne Anker. Ultimately, I knew what I really wanted to be was a singing rabbi. That dream became a reality when I finished a second Master's degree in rabbinic studies and became ordained as a rabbi at the Academy for Jewish Religion, CA , a transdenominational pluralistic seminary for rabbis, cantors and chaplains. I am dedicated to being a welcoming inclusive voice to people of all denominations and the people they love. This includes members of the LGBTQ community.
I am also the spiritual leader at Congregation Ohr Tzafon meaning "Northern Light"
in Atascadero, CA. For fun, I sing with Canzona, a women's vocal ensemble.
