Here's a d'rash I gave for Parashat Va'era at Congregation Beth Shalom in Coconut Creek, Florida. I was asked to teach some Torah, as well explain what it means to be a cantorial student at JTS.

B'nei Mitzvah Packet
From teaching over 30 B'nei Mitzvah, I have compiled a B'nei Mitzvah packet for a hypothetical community, which I've named Congregation Derech Eretz. It contains all of the materials that I would want a family approaching the bar or bat mitzvah of a child to receive (this example is for parashat Toldot).
Teaching Jewish Knitting and Embroidery
I taught a workshop at White Meadow Temple, NJ on creating Jewish-themed art projects using knitting and embroidery. Beginners focused on learning basic knitting techniques, while the more advanced participants made stockinette squares to be embroidered with Shabbes candle, kiddish cup, challah, magen david, or hannukiah designs. The same patterns can be used to emboss these designs into the knitting. Here are some sample pictures:
Student Leader: Columbia University Klezmer Band
I was the student leader of the Columbia University Klezmer Band 2012-2013. We rehearse on campus Wednesday evenings, and are always open to new members. We are privileged to have Jeff Warschauer as our faculty advisor. In the 2012 fall semester, we performed at the end of year JTS staff party, we shared an end of semester performance with the Columbia University Bluegrass Band, and we gave an outdoor concert as part of Charlotte Mayerson's 116th Street Overlook Terrace Concert Series. Check out this video from our May 2013 end of Spring semester concert, and contact me for more information about joining or hiring the band.
Building on our work together leading the CUKB, Jeff and I led a klezmer/cantorial modality workshop for JTS cantorial students in March, 2013.
