Born in NYC, raised in Cleveland, OH, I lived with my husband and our two children in NJ for 25 years. As empty-nesters, my husband and I relocated to Boston. I worked for many years as a CPA (MBA, 1980 NYU), but eventually went back to school to become a rabbi (ordained 2000), and then earned a Ph.D. in Bible (2009 JTSA). I now teach Adult Education classes in biblical topics in Boston. My husband and I have long been concerned with environmental issues and in the last two years I have been volunteering with Citizens Climate Lobby.
