- 2008: First step [Torah poem]
- 2010: On going forth
- 2013: Becoming Avraham: names and transformation in Lech-Lecha
- 2014: The One Who Sees Me

And here are commentaries from the URJ:
There’s a lot happening at CBI this week. On Monday 10/15 at 7:30pm we’ll hear from speaker Kenneth Stern on Antisemitism In America: Past and Present. On Saturday 10/20 at 5:30pm we’ll gather for our 125th Anniversary Gala. And in between, there’s Jewish Values, Trans Inclusivity, and “Yes on 3,” three events with Rabbi Mike Moskowitz (who’s teaching at CBI at 7:30pm on Weds 10/17.)
Hope to see you soon at CBI!
