Programs and Services
Prayer is vital. Finding a voice for prayer is my passion. I’m available to help individuals and worship communities in these ways:
Writing coach and editor – Professional assistance to writers with structuring, developing and conceptualizing their work. Services include writing/rewriting, developmental editing and substantive/line editing.
Readings – Programs combining new prayers with original short fiction.
Commissioned liturgy – Prayers commissioned for private or synagogue use, such as a dedication or special anniversary. Credits include: “My Rabbi,” written at the request of Beth Emet: The Free Synagogue for the retirement of Rabbi Peter Knobel, and “On Spiritual Service,” written for the installation of Andrea London as the senior rabbi at Beth Emet.
Artistic collaboration – Projects developed jointly with other artists, such as musicians, singers, songwriters, dancers and graphic artists.
Liturgist-in-residence – Custom programs ranging from a focused weekend event to a year-long series of activities, including readings, adult workshops, youth programs and worship.
Writing workshops – Classes and workshops for adults and youth to encourage the creation and expression of prayer or to encourage spiritually-based Jewish writing of all kinds. Credits include a three-session adult workshop on Jewish fiction and a two-session class for teens on writing t’fillot, both sponsored by Beth Emet: The Free Synagogue.
