He’s written more than 600 pieces of new liturgy, offering a fresh new Jewish voice, challenging the boundaries between poetry, meditation, personal growth, and prayer. He’s a teacher, a writing coach, and an award-winning essayist and journalist. His ELI talk, “Falling in Love with Prayer,” was recently released. His third book, This Grateful Heart: Psalms and Prayers for a New Day, was recently released by CCAR Press.
