 My music career began in 1976 at Temple Beth El in Alexandria, Virginia when Rabbi Arnold G. Fink asked me (a shy 16 year-old) to lead a contemporary service.  He encouraged me to seek out new paths for Jewish music and to implement these new ideas in a guitar-led, participatory service.  Soon after, I created a student-led service for pre-B’nei-Mitzvah-aged students, Junior Congregation, which became very popular with the students and their families.  My role expanded to include High Holy Days, B'nei Mitzvah, Tot Shabbat, and "Beth El in the Neighborhood" services.  After I graduated from the University of Maryland, I also began teaching religious School at Temple Shalom in Chevy Chase, Maryland, as well as songleading for their retreat program and Family Services.

Since 1995, I have been the Religious School Music Specialist at Washington Hebrew Congregation.  In addition to teaching music and leading services at Hebrew School four days a week, I also lead the music for WHC’s monthly Family services, High Holiday Family Services, and the annual interfaith Freedom Seder.  Additionally, I song-lead on retreats for the 8-9th grade Chavaya program and Confirmation Class, and 7th grade overnights. 

I have also led the music for Woodmont Country Club’s first-night Passover seder since 1998
