“When parents provide the right education at an early age it transforms the entire arc of their child’s life. Gesher strives to make quality, customized education a possibility for all the families who come through the doors of our Yeshiva.”

I started teaching undergraduate and graduate students 30 years ago at the City University of New York and New York University. I have seen what happens when people are given the education they need, at the time they need it. I have written and studied widely on issues of religion, politics, civil society, and philanthropy, including Jewish philanthropy. In the course of this work, I have raised millions of dollars in research for these subjects and communities.

Since 2009, I’ve been a senior educational administrator, becoming the Executive Director of Gesher Yehuda Yeshiva in 2014. It’s been a privilege to support individualized curricula for our students at Gesher and seeing them thrive.
