I grew up in Indiana, received a B.A. from Indiana University in 1993 and rabbinical ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1999. In 2005, I became the spiritual leader of Temple Beth El in Somerset, New Jersey, where I started an annual Jewish film festival, organized communal Passover seders, and taught popular adult education courses. I am a past president of the New Jersey Rabbinical Assembly.
I am the author of three books that are used throughout the Ramah network of Jewish summer camps. I have also developed several apps for the iPhone and iPad, including two that help users how to read Torah and Haftarah readings.
My wife, Naomi Lasky, and I are the proud parents of our twins, Sari and Josh.
