I am a rabbi with a Masters in Jewish Education and experience in designing Bar/Bat/B Mitzvah ceremonies for people of all identities, abilities and interests. My chaplaincy skills give me insight to work with diverse people and create the beautiful ritual you deserve.

“Thank you for all the hours you spent with Wendi studying Torah and working on her d’var.  You have an intuitive and appealing way of motivating young people.  Thank you for officiating at Wendi’s Bat Mitzvah and for the kind and personal words during your address. We will remember and cherish them.”

“Tziona Szajman is a wonderful rabbi.  She welcomed me into her office, taught me Hebrew once a week even though at the time I was in my late 70s, and then she taught me how to chant the Haftarah and encouraged me to do this from the Bima.  This is something I never would have attempted if she hadn’t been in my life.  She is warm hearted, very intelligent, and spiritual.” –Sylvia Horowitz, Temple Israel, Vestal, NY
