Kevah

Kevah empowers individuals and organizations to build Jewish learning communities via Kevah Groups matched to an outstanding Kevah educator. Kevah’s commitment to educational excellence, accessibility of sources and principled pluralism enables Jewish adults to take ownership of their Jewish and spiritual lives.

I'm delighted to serve as a Kevah educator for Honeymoon Israel alumni and I specialize in tailoring content & format for each new group.

Want to go on a hike and study Jewish environmental ethics? Want to wrestle Jewish beliefs on what happens after we die (hint, there's not just one opinion)! Want to learn about Jewish cooking traditions from around the world and then get your hands dirty with regional delicacies? Want to explore the circumcision debate? Let's get our learning on!

Here is more about me on the Kevah Denver website.

OneTable brings Shabbat to people in their 20s and 30s of all backgrounds. Taking a step back, connecting with others, having moments of mindfulness, and enjoying great meals on a Friday night is OneTable's mission.

As a guest speaker at OneTable's leadership retreat, I spoke about the Jewish tradition of hospitality to all and creating Shabbat meals that are inviting and accessible.
