Baruch Haba /ברוך הבא / Welcome / שלום /Shalom
Thanks for stopping by.
I am Howard.
I am a rabbi, firefighter, wilderness guide and life coach.
When I am not attending to the needs of Congregation Shirat Hayam on Boston's South Shore
I can be found leading wilderness canoe trips infused with Judaism,
responding to fire calls or meeting with coaching clients.
What connects firefighting, rabbi-ing, wilderness guiding and coaching is simple.
They all involve service to others; holy work and building meaningful, and trust based relationships with others.
Plus they are all a lot of fun.
I am available to provide you, your family or community with all manner of rabbinic services;
guide you on a Judaism infused wilderness canoe trip; or work with you as a life coach. Sorry, but I do not do free-lance firefighting.
