Here is my story, and how the name Thread in Spirit was born. Living in our world requires balance. Our days are always ful, like an ocean current, there is always another wave rushing in to fill the nearly empty space. This website demonstrate the balance in my life. Take a look into my life and see what I am passionate about. Yes, I am a Rabbi, I was ordained in 1993, and I was the Spiritual Leader in Taos, New Mexico from 1981 -1998. My day job in Taos was as a silk-screen artist printing works from original oils for Taos artists. In 1999 I attended UNM in Albuquerque. After 10 years of being the Rabbi at Solomon Schecter Day School, I have now opened a place of learning that offers classes in Art, Spiritual Growth and Teachings from the Jewish tradition which is called Makor, which means Source. Thread in Spirit is a name that came from many weeks of brainstorming with whomever was willing to play along. One Shabbos evening with close friends, we migrated from the living into the sewing studio. Somehow, we often ended up in that tiny room, I'm guessing, just so we could be around the potential of creativity. The name finally came from that room, as my dear friends looked around and said aloud the words they saw. Once the words Thread in Spirit came forth, we all got silent. I could hardly wait to see if the name was available. Obviously it was. My active creatvity comes from sewing with fabrics and other art materials. When I am sitting at the sewing machine, a calmness descends upon me. However I am still hungry to teach. A Rabbi once told me that we don't just learn in order gain wisdom, we learn in order to influence. Teachers, parents, friends are all role models. In all that we do, we influence.
