Log-in to Favorite

I am a spiritual storyteller. My task in this world is to bring light and love to everybody I meet. Most of my work is in telling Jewish religious stories in Jewish venues. But I also tell Jewish tales in churches, mosques, ashrams and interfaith venues. In addition, I occasionally tell stories of all the religions, either in Jewish or interfaith settings. I also teach spiritual storytelling and since 2004 direct a program to train and ordain men and women to be a maggid. I have ordained 31 people. I am the author of ten books on Jewish mysticism and spirituality. One book is Storytelling and Spirituality in Judaism, which is about the Hasidic theology of storytelling.
