I am a blogger — also a writer of essays, poetry, and liturgy — living in rural western Massachusetts, USA. I run an arts nonprofit called Inkberry which seeks to strengthen connections between writing and life and create a space where everyone can discover their voice. I hope that my blog, Velveteen Rabbi can serve as a window into liberal Judaism, a bridge between religious traditions, and a café where matters of religion can be discussed freely and courteously.
