About this family:We often get asked ‘How is it to have 4 boys at home?’ and our favorite answer is busy. Amongst the controlled chaos of the boys running around we find time for what is important… family, education and a strong Jewish Identity. Our Jewish Identity is more conservative than reform and we embrace the Jewish practices our children are learning in school. Our boys love to learn and share what they are learning at school with the rest of the family. As much as we enjoy being with our immediate family we also enjoy spending time our extended family, which is quite large. We enjoy cooking and eating, running and roller blading. We can often be found out and about on the UWS, we’re the ones with the boys zipping along on their scooters!

Favorite Rodeph Sholom School moment:When we were in distance learning in Spring 2020, our oldest son’s class was learning about Central Park (a Kindergarten tradition at Rodeph Sholom School). He really connected with this lesson as we live very close to the park. We spent hours as a family exploring new locations throughout the park and really felt the school/home connection.
