What the Teacher Tries to Do

You are many pieces of a wonderful puzzle–part historian, rabbi, poet, teacher, reflective listener, and coach to the seekers of religious truths.  You transport your students through the horrors of crusader attacks, the verses of William Carlos Williams and the moral ambiguities of military engagement of Israeli soldiers, to name just a few examples from among the treasure trove of your encyclopedic knowledge.  Dr. Margot and Jon Davis

quotes
[David] has a brilliant mind; he is a scholar of great range and depth; he is a deeply devoted father and husband; his outstanding abilities at organization are manifest in the splendid Me'ah Program he created and fostered; he is a forceful and moving orator; he is a man of both compassion and commitment; he is a teacher who fortifies and inspires; he is a natural leader; and his contribution to the Jewish community is legendary.
