Rabbi Josh loves to incorporate a synthesis of ancient Torah wisdom with the research and techniques of modern psychology to offer a unique blend of support and insight to the challenges and dreams of the young Jewish professionals of our generation.
Laura hails from the deep South (Atlanta, Georgia), where like her husband Josh, she left high school a year early to go and study in the Holy Land.
Most recently, Laura spent five years as the Women’s Coordinator for the Jewish Study Network in the San Francisco Bay Area where she taught crowds of all backgrounds, provided one-on-one Torah mentoring, and created innovative and rich Jewish programming catered specifically for women.
Her classes varied from “Love, Dating, and Marriage,” Women in the Bible, to in depth understanding of Biblical texts, and more.
It was while studying intensively at a number of Jewish studies programs in Israel that she developed a passion to share the beauty and depth of Judaism.
She did that for a number of years, as the Women’s Program Director at the Atlanta Scholar’s Kollel for several summers, and as a teacher in various venues in the New York area and at Jerusalem’s Shearim College for Women.
An inspired and enthusiastic informal educator, Yehuda has been active in Jewish communal work and Hebrew School programming for over ten years.
