About Leah

We tend to approach ancient and sacred texts from a place of distance and reverence.  My goal as an interpreter of Torah and Jewish texts is to bring the text into our experience, or to crack the veneer of the foreign language that keeps us at a distance. The Torah is written with language that is immediate and visceral.  We honor its teachings when we grapple with the way it interacts with our own experiences.

I am a Jewish educator, actress and mom living in Southern California.  My life blends different ways of personalizing and interpreting text and creating experiences that excavate the depth of human experience.
