What I do

I teach fifth grade boys at KES and focus on instilling in my talmidim a love of Torah, a desire to work hard and a genuine feeling of self-worth.

How I make a difference at YTCTE

By the end of the school year, when I can tangibly see the growth of so many of my talmidim, I know I made a difference in their lives and in the very future of Klal Yisroel.

My favorite part about what I do

I am proud to be a positive role model for my talmidim and my community. It is amazing to know how the morals, values, and skills which I provide my talmidim will be critical to helping them succeed in life.

Parting Words

In addition to my love for teaching and music, I also enjoy long-distance running and pushing my physical limits. My students also find it fascinating that I have a k’sav kabbalah for shechita too!
