Raised in New Jersey, I attended the University of Chicago prior to my aliya to Israel in 1970.  Continuing my studies in Bible and Jewish History at the Hebrew University, I received a BA and MA, Teaching Certification and becanme a licensed tour guide. After my army service, I went into the field of education, both with Jewish students from abroad and in Jerusalem high schools.  After several years of work in computer-based educational productions, I returned to studies, at the Davidson School of Jewish Education of JTS, and obtained an Ed. D.  I have been teaching at HUC Jerusalem since 2007, while offering online courses for JTS and continuing to develop a web site on biblical art.
