Lois Shenker, Life Coach & Jewish Advisor

As your Jewish Advisor, my goal is to help you "do Jewish" on your terms...whatever those may be.

Rabbi Zusya said, "In the world to come, I shall not be asked, "Why were you not Moses?" I shall be asked, "Why were you not Zusya?"

Jewish Advisor

I am Jewish by birth, Jewish by practice, and Jewish by choice; and every single day, all the time, to the core of my very being, I am Jewish on purpose!

As a Jewish Advisor, my Jewish focus is on the joys and challenges of contemporary Jewish living.

I can help you learn: how to do it, where to find it, to be good at it, and feel comfortable in the process.

  • Are you new to the Jewish experience through adulthood, intermarriage or conversion?
  • Do you want to better understand the Jewish experience?
  • Do you want a meaningful Jewish life for yourself and your family?
  • Do you feel uninformed when others ask you about Jewish things and being Jewish?
  • Do you want to be more comfortable in your “Jewish” shoes?

If you said “YES!” to any of these questions, I can help you get your answers.
