My Goals and Philosophy

I am a board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist located on Long Island, licensed in the state of New York. I am also a certified mohel having completed the Berit Mila Program for physician Mohalim. This comprehensive program is sponsored by: The Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR); The Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR); and the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).

My detail oriented personality is reflected in my innovative approach to planning and performing a Simchat Bat Ceremony. A passion for intricate details allows me to create a vibrant and contemporary ceremony that embraces a 4,000 year old tradition with enormous dignity and grace.

My passion and devotion to excellence is unparalleled. I have continually explored and refined the concept of the "perfect Simchat Bat." My goal is to make each ceremony unique and personalized and I am relentless in terms of creating a beautiful moment in a family’s life.

It would be my honor to attend your daughter’s Simchat Bat Ceremony.
