I am a culturally identified, spiritual Reform Jew, with a fascination for and love of my religion’s stories, ritual, wisdom, history and culture(s) particularly music. I am second-generation English with grandparents who were refugees from Russia and Poland. I have a degree in music and have performed Jewish song in Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino for some years.
I am passionate about cross-cultural work in particular between the Jewish and Muslim communities and have set up The Devon Muslim and Jewish Friendship Group. I also work for CAP UK, (the Child Assault Prevention project UK) presenting empowering, interactive workshops with primary age children aimed at reducing their vulnerability to child abuse.
