Fortunate to have grown up in Amherst, MA. Roots in Hashomer Hatzair. "1st Aliyah" in 1982. Trained in Israel as a physiotherapist. Returned to the US for 21 years. Became a Reconstructionist Rabbi and served a congregation on the Maine Coast. "2nd Aliyah" in 2009. Physiotherapy is my current primary means to earn a living while learning from, loving and serving my fellow humans -- my patients, their families, and my coworkers.
