About the blog

The title of the blog is relatively self-explanatory. But as a bit of filler, here’s a bit about me:

  1. I’m the rabbi at Machar: The Washington Congregation for Secular Humanistic Judaism. Take some time to learn more about Machar.
  2. I have significant (as in, graduate degree-level) education in Jewish history and thought.
  3. I’m a licensed attorney, however, I AM NOT AND WILL NOT BE YOUR ATTORNEY. I am not soliciting business, as I do not practice law for clients. Don’t ask–I won’t accept your inquiry.
  4. Was a rabbinical student here. Now I’m a rabbi. So that happened.

I hope, if you’re reading this, that you’ll stick around or come back from time to time as I post what I hope will be interesting observations, explorations, and reflections on modern Jewish thought, identity, and life. Some articles have an Indiana twist, because that’s where we used to live until August 2017, when we moved to the D.C. area.
