She firmly believes that everyone has a right to learn and feel connected to his/her heritage. Lisa consults with many Jewish and other faith organizations to guide them in the development of inclusive practices for staff, clergy, and families through interactive workshops, dialogue, and awareness training. She is currently the Education Director at Temple Beth-El in Central New Jersey where she oversees an inclusive synagogue school. Additionally, she is the Project Manager for the UJA Federation of New York’s Synagogue Inclusion Project, Cohort 2. Her writing is regularly featured in such publications as The NY Jewish Week, Reform Judaism.org, Kveller, and Think Inclusive.
