Spiritual Leader, Mosaic Law Congregation, Sacramento
When I was little, I wanted to be:
An actor like Robert Young in Father Knows Best.
I am most happy when: The Sacramento Kings are winning.
I love the sound of: A baby happily cooing in his or her crib.
People would be surprised to know: I once walked into John Wooden’s office at UCLA to ask for a walk-on tryout.
I’m a big believer that: The world would be a better place if people were kinder to each other.
It makes me sad to see: That the world isn’t doing more to stop the genocide
My favorite holiday is: Sukkot, where Jews are supposed to eat and sleep in temporary huts for seven days, humbling ourselves before our Creator.
My most dreaded chore is: Throwing away anything.
My favorite midnight snack is: Mint chocolate chip ice cream.
The best decision I ever made was: Changing careers and becoming a rabbi.
The worst decision I ever made was: Wearing Photogray eyeglasses at my wedding, resulting in every picture of me with dark sunglasses. My mother-in-law was not very happy. Oy vey! is all I can say.
