Now I’m a corporate communications professional, with an expertise in executive communications but in a previous career, I served as a political and policy staffer at the Orthodox Union, the nation’s (& actually the world’s) largest Orthodox Jewish umbrella.  In that role I traveled to state capitals and Jewish communities across North America to advocate on behalf of Jewish interests and values.  Sometimes, I’d serve as a scholar in residence over Shabbos (Shabbat) & I began to speak from the pulpit (rabbis like sharing their pulpits) and I began to look at the weekly Torah portion – the parsha – in a new light.  From that, based on the encouragement of a colleague, Maury Litwack, I started posting weekly thoughts on a new OU blog entitled politics & parsha.  To my surprise, I got very good feedback from folks who enjoyed reading it.  Thus encouraged, I kept at it and now, even as I have left the profession of Jewish communal service, I continue to craft these each week.  I hope you will read them and like them.  They are, as I say, shul politics like never before.
