About Us

As the founder and owner of Your Mitzvah Your Way, I am an experienced Service Leader, Jewish Educator and Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor with a Master’s in Education and Human Development.  I have been working with individuals, couples and groups from the greater Washington DC metropolitan area including Virginia and Maryland.

Your Mitzvah Your Way was conceived to meet a growing demand to celebrate your occasion in a traditional or modern context.  Be it joyous or solemn, I will work with you to create Your Mitzvah Your Way.

Based in Potomac, MD, I am associated with many of the local Jewish places of worship in Rockville, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Chevy Chase, Gaithersburg and Northern Virginia.

My clients are young, young at heart, knowledgeable and novices!

Looking forward to getting you started.
