Why you are interested in spirituality? Pursuing something greater than myself is in my blood. Coming from a long line of spiritual seekers and rabbis, I knew from an early age that I was asking questions of meaning and purpose long before most people.

Your favorite quote: Luck is the residue of design.

Your hero? My mom. She has lived her life with courage, bravery, humility, compassion and humor.

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? To stay in the present even when it feels intolerable. All feelings pass. They are not facts.

A place in the world where you feel spiritually ‘connected?’ so many places. God is everywhere I let God in. Sometimes even the market.”
