For as long as I can remember, I have been conscious of the passing and the preciousness of time. Formerly a lawyer, I worked in a large law firm, where we billed clients in tenths of hours. Eventually, I came to feel that I was doling out my life by the teaspoonsful, six minutes per measure.

Rather than sell or spend my time, I wanted to invest it in what mattered to me most, in what I hoped most would endure: Judaism and the Jewish people. So, I became a rabbi. The subsequent years have been rich with blessings.
