:בְּחָכְמָה יִבָּנֶה בָּיִת וּבִתְבוּנָה יִתְכּוֹנָן

:וּבְדַעַת חֲדָרִים יִמָּלְאוּ כָּל־הוֹן יָקָר וְנָעִים

A house is built with wisdom, and it is established through understanding, and with knowledge its rooms are filled with precious and pleasant treasures.  (Proverbs 24:3-4)


The cultural and spiritual heritage of the Jewish people is filled with treasures that enrich our understanding and appreciation of the wonders of life.  I have spent a lifetime exploring and sharing this heritage through prayer, poetry, stories, essays, books and teaching.  Please join me as I continue my journey.
