Currently she chairs the 16th and 23rd Faith Committee of Family Violence. She blogs as the Energizer Rabbi, http://www.theenergizerrabbi.org
. She believes in the power of the the Jewish calendar to help heal from trauma. Recently she discovered a sculpture created by Fritz Olsen in New Buffalo, Michigan, called 'Enduring Spirit;. It is dedicated to the Potawatomi tribe, who teach that «life itself is not viewed as a line, but rather a cyclical thing that has its own seasons.» The tie-in to this topic was immediately obvious. Her goal is to enable victims of sexual assault or domestic violence to thrive again through the cycle of the Jewish year.
