For the past 42 years I have been discovering how Judaism can enrich our modern lives. I have made it my mission to translate my knowledge into an uplifting experience on your special day.   

Today, I am the associate Rabbi at Temple Chai in Phoenix, AZ where I also directs the Deutsch Family Shalom Center.

As a columnist and public speaker, my writings have been published in numerous books, journals, local and national media.

How I Stand Out

I believe in a personalized approach to serving my clients. By listening attentively and being well-prepared, I am able to provide meaningful guidance to those seeking my service.

I have over 42 years experience. I have officiated over 500 wedding, over 300 baby naming and read last rights at 200 over funerals.  

I am a leader in the woman's reform movement. I have chaired dozens of committees. I helped to draft the City of Mesa’s ethics code, served on the Boards of the Jewish Family and Children’s Service, as well as the Jewish Community Relations Council.

In 2010 I was invited to the White House with Jewish leaders in a meeting with President George W. Bush.

In 2010 I was named as one of the Forward’s “Sisterhood 50 – America’s Influential Women Rabbis.”
