As an LGBTQ+ activist in Israel I have worked to empower and share my personal coming out of the closet story in order to empower and grant tools for others to feel more comfortable with their sexual identity.
I founded and currently co-direct “Mabad-Mibad” an emerging young adult community of Arabs and Jews from East and West Jerusalem. I worked for the past five years in conflict resolution and dialogue facilitation between Arabs and Jews.
I am also currently a rabbinical student and a Weitzman-JDC Jewish Peoplehood fellow at JIR-HUC.
For the past three years of my rabbinic journey I have integrated my spiritual practice with my years of facilitating movement experiences, founding my signature MoveMeant-Embodying Sacred Texts workshop.
In these workshops we embody Jewish rituals such as Kabbalat Shabbat, Havdalah, Torah Services that integrate movement, live singing (musicians singing in Heb, Eng, Yiddish and more), Jewish texts, and mindfulness practices. We also lead workshops in a variety of uniquely-tailored and time-specific adaptations. Over the past 10 months, we’ve offered over 35 workshops so far to different communities (including Limmud UK, City Shul Toronto, Romemu, JCC Manhattan, BBYO, JNF, Nava Tehila, Lab/Shul, Moishe House PLR & Moishe House Israel and more) all over the globe over zoom.
