It gives me great joy to share my story with people of all ages and all backgrounds! 

I am available for speaking engagements and interviews. I am currently living in Framingham, MA.

​Feel free to contact me by email:​


"Thank you for your two amazing presentations at Congregation B'nai Emmunah. You are one of the most gripping speakers I have ever heard. We were privileged to have had you speak to us." -- Rabbi Shimon Mach

"We want to thank you for joining us and sharing your heart-rending and emotional story. Words can arouse passions and even accomplish miracles. You inspired your listeners' highest devotion to the needs of our fellow Jews. We were delighted you could be part of the program and make our evening so special. Once again, our heartfelt thanks." -- Scott Mandelup and David Rosner, UJA Federation of New York (May 1999)
