RESUME

In my dreams I'm acting/singing on the still-thriving, 2nd Avenue, Yiddish Theater, and entertainment still only happens live! Hey it's a little bit of a daydream but it keeps me going.

I entertain elders, dabble in Jewish, liturgical prayer leadership, occasionally teach Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons and I hope all of this is helping to change the world.
