About Me and This Blog



About Me

I grew up in Riverdale, NY and have been living in Cambridge, MA since 2005. My excellent room mate is my husband Sam, and we've got one adventurous daughter.

I work full time as the Program Manager for the Wexner Israel Fellowship at the Harvard Kennedy School. I teach in various community settings, including Eser and Parenting Through a Jewish Lens. I volunteer with the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts and enjoy leading services at Minyan Tehillah

I wrote this blog for three years to combine two passions of mine – cooking and Jewish education. I'm on a bit of a hiatus for now.

About This Blog

Double Portion is a food blog of recipes that correspond to the weekly Torah portion. I started writing the blog in November 2009 and hope to one day turn the blog into a cookbook- an idea I dreamed up in high school!
