A Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a rite of passage for a 12/13 year old young adult. It is a moment in time when we celebrate a child’s growth and ability to accept more responsibility. Rabbi Stacy seeks to ensure that every student has a positive experience in their journey to becoming B’nai Mitzvah. She works with individual students at their own pace, creating a customized service that can include family, friends and specialized elements.

Burying and mourning a beloved family member or friend can be difficult. A funeral, while sad in nature, is also an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the life of the deceased. A funeral is the final act that anyone of us can perform for a loved one—a demonstration of compassion and respect. Rabbi Stacy can offer structure and guidance throughout the mourning process and craft a memorial service that captures and honors the spirit of your loved one.
Rabbi Stacy was an athlete all her life; she grew up playing field hockey, tennis and skiing. As an adult, she developed into a triathlete and a marathoner. Rabbi Stacy initially used yoga to balance her other workouts but over time she came to understand that yoga offers a spiritual element that invites practitioners to connect-- to connect with themselves, with Judaism and with the world around them. Rabbi Stacy offers private or small group yoga with a Jewish or secular theme.
