Welcome to my homepage!!

Here's your guide to this page:
A little about me ** A sampling of my written work ** A list of my favorite links **

Thanks for coming! I'm very glad you dropped by.

On this site, you will find items that interest me - many of which may interest you as well.

You will find articles and essays I have written over the years.

You will find my resume and related materials, plus links to pages full of wacky topicality - ranging from Jewish folk music to youth groups to humor and more.

So of course, this page is some 7 years old, and the era of blogs has arrived. For more recent and updated content, please visit my blog at BLOG HAMINCHA!

There are two types of hosts: Those that say, "Take off your shoes and come in," and those that say, "Come in and take off your shoes!"

I aim to be the latter.
