My self-summary
I’m a spiritual seeker who gets his highs through music, being in Nature, loving my friends and family, meditating, and learning. I always try to find the good in everything. When I’m feeling stressed, I take a deep breath and smile. When I’m feeling good, I try to spread that goodness to those around me. I care about social, economic, and environmental justice. I want to spend my life learning, growing, and making the world a better place.
What I’m doing with my life
After I graduated college, I spent some living in a Buddhist monastery in Southeast Asia. I had thought that this was how I’d spend my life, but while I was up on this mountain meditating, it hit me – I can’t spend the rest of my life in this monastery, as amazing as it was. I decided that I wanted a family and engagement with the world. It felt selfish to spend my life seeking enlightenment, knowing that there were so many other good things I could be doing with my life. In the end, I went back to my Jewish roots and after 6 years of schooling, I became a rabbi so that I could continue my spiritual journey and help others, too. I'm now the rabbi of a small, liberal synagogue in the suburbs and I live in Cambridge.
I’m really good at
Being optimistic, laughing, and learning foreign languages. I can always find the silver lining and I smile through most of the day. I enjoy playing music and running, but I’d be lying if I said I was “really good” at either.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like reading about history, philosophy, and spirituality. I also read the news a few times a day. I’m a hard worker, yet I always find time for tv, music, and food. I usually spend 1 or 2 hours at the end of the day watching tv – it’s my opportunity to turn my brain off and relax. I love listening to and playing music because, I don’t know, it just makes me feel good. You can see the whole world as a symphony and we’re the orchestra! Music sings to my soul. I like listening to any artist who puts their heart into their work and has an authentic sound.

I’m pretty open minded with food, too. My favorite cuisine is Italian, but I eat everything and I like trying new places.
The six things I could never do without
I’ve been taught by Buddhist monks and a Native American Elder who showed me how to survive and thrive with nothing but myself in the serenity of nature. But realistically, there are at least 6 things I depend on for my cosmopolitan lifestyle (in no particular order) – pizza, friends, family, weed, coffee, and my Iphone. I’m not proud about my dependence on my phone, but I feel naked without it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably working in a synagogue. On my nights off, I'm more likely to be home with my cat or hanging out with friends rather than out drinking somewhere.
