Dance OUR Dreams

What happens when a rabbi and a DJ walk into a podcast?

A whole lotta magic--laughter, authenticity, and spiritual tools! Together we dive into:

~Inclusive spiritual practices

~Flipping the old paradigm of action, result, feeling to:

Feeling --> Aligned Action --> Results with Integrity

​~Choos​ing​ the mindset and energy​ we want to bring to challenges large and small​.

​~​The power of small gestures

​~​What the Talmud has to say about infus​ing​ a sense of delight and joy into the everyday​.​

​DJ Valerie brings a stirring commitment to healing our world with each podcast through her lens of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.​ Check out what happens when we bring JOY and wonder ​to our​ healing​.​

Your Living Brand Live

I join brand marketing expert Ben Baker for a wholehearted conversation exploring:

  • How the heck I decided to become a rabbi.
  • What I've learned the most when responding to tragedy.
  • The essence of my work when serving wedding couples (and a special discount code for wedding referrals)!
  • The journey of being a woman rabbi--how far we've come and how far we have to go.
  • A quote that guides my life.

Facebook Live Coffee Talk: Rituals Of Release

I join relationship coach Erin Celeste for a conversation about rituals for relationship transitions. We'll explore Rituals Of Release offering compassion with all that is, the magic of releasing, and opening to future possibilities.

Juicy nuggets:

~The best metaphor for ritual I've ever heard.

~A really fun way to bring magic into ritual.

~Ritual only needs these 3 elements.

~Ways to use the power of the moon in ritual.

This is perfect for anyone looking to release a relationship, an expectation, situation, or a loss.

Sitting With The Unknown: Continual Revelation Of The Not-Yet Revealed

The Rainy Season

Check out page 3 as I consider the rainy season a time of flexibility, where a lack might be transformed into a gain and a vulnerability considered a source of blessing.

A Commandment of JOY!.png

A Commandment of JOY?!

How do we hold joy while others suffer?

What does it look like to claim joy without guilt?

How do we summon joy when we're truly struggling?

Join me as I explore these themes... beginning with a searing question as I sat on the couch during therapy. :)

Rosh Hashana 2019/5780

Delivered at Temple Shir Tikvah, Winchester, MA

Pride Shabbat

Communally Blessed:  A Coming Out Story. Pride Shabbat 2019

I was honored to be asked to deliver the sermon at Pride Shabbat services. And standing before a room of strangers to tell my story felt both intimidating and deeply right.

I called my mom on the way to services to tell her she was getting a major shot out in my sermon. She had no memory of the phone call I reference--which makes it all the better. :) | Roman Fortress

Who Are You? And What Are You Doing Here?

A wrong turn leads Rabbi Akivah to a Roman fortress and a series of soul-stirring questions. Yom Kippur words at shared Judaism Your Way's morning service...what does it mean to return to our hearts?

Delivered on Yom Kippur 2017/5778. | Ceremony

Temple Beth Or Farewell Sermon

My heart and soul are forever touched by the generosity, compassion, humor, integrity, respect, and light of Temple Beth Or.

It is not easy to leave a place when things are good, when there is so much shared love and deep respect and connection. Sometimes when good things come to an end, they end precisely because they were good.

Read my farewell sermon here. | Self Compassion


Forgiving ourselves frees our energies to tell a new story of who we are. If the Divine exercises ultimate compassion, how can we aspire to less?

Delivered on Rosh Hashana 2016/5777. | Mental Illness

Struggling with Mental Illness

A Jewish response to those who suffer and those who caretake.

Gun Control

How do we address gun violence from a Jewish perspective?

Delivered on Shabbat Shuvah 2016/5777. | Balance

Yitro’s Invitation

How do we construct our lives to implement our values? How do we strive toward equilibrium?

An Imitation of Death Through the Power of Vulnerability

God does not desire perfection, just our authenticity and striving.
