I’m a mom of 5 and grandmom of 4 ( ! ). I live in Maaleh Adumim right outside of Jerusalem. My husband and I have lived in Israel for 30 years, originally from Queens. I have a masters degree in informal Jewish education for Jews of the diaspora, as well as a teacher’s degree. I’ve been a guide, and driver, for 19 years. I love the diversity, guiding families, businessmen, elderhostel groups, students, bar and bat mitzvah tours, and everything else in between – I get to make new friends daily! And I get to do it all over Israel: the most interesting, beautiful, warm, treasure-filled place on earth. I have fun every day I guide, and I’m addicted to chocolate.
