As the daughter of a Rabbi, I was raised with a love of Judaism.
I am a life-long learner and continue to marvel at the positive impact the Jewish Tradition can have on individuals and communities. I have participated in many beautiful and joyous lifecycle events and holiday celebrations throughout my life.
I try to bring this sense of joy and richness of the Jewish
experience when making this introduction into Judaism for
the child and their family.
Esther has been a maternal child nurse for over 40 years. She has been a practicing Certified Nurse Midwife since 2006.

Several years and many procedures later, she enrolled in and completed her spiritual training with the Reform Movement’s brit milah training for medical professionals. She continues to perform neonatal circumcisions at her midwifery job, and has been performing ritual circumcisions at homes and in synagogues since certification. She is a member of NOAM (National Organization of American Mohalim) and attends continuing education via this organization.
