Own Your Judaism gives people an opportunity to chart their own path to Judaism and to do so free of judgment or rebuke. We guide people on their journey (without telling them what to do), help people identify what is missing in their Jewish lives, and build community around it. Own Your Judaism helps people activate their Jewish energy and be active agents on their own religious path.
A registered non-profit organization, Own Your Judaism is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and serves an international community. We host in-person, online, and hybrid programs, including learning, celebrating, life-cycles events, and coaching.
Who I Am
Like many Jews, I am looking for a Judaism that is meaningful and relevant to me (and to my family). An ordained rabbi, I am fortunate to have the training and experience to create a mindful Jewish life and practice that makes sense for me, and I want to help anyone else looking to walk down that same path.
Born and raised in Milwaukee, I’m a father of two, I love sports, I’m passionate about living out my ideals in the world, and I enjoy almost all puzzles and games. Most simply, I want to do my part to help people make better decisions which, in turn, I believe will help this world become a better place.
