"Rev. Chani is such a wonderful human. I just love how encouraging and incredibly honest they are. What a blessing this was."

- m.h.

"What started as a group of strangers sitting uncomfortably in a circle ended with profound sharing and connection. That's what happens when Rev. Chani facilities a training or workshop."

- workshop attendee

"In a little over an hour of teaching and conversation, I had new tools and new ways of being in the world. That's pretty amazing and that's what Rev. Chani brought to the workshop."


"Oh my G-d that was amazing. What a person Rev. Chani is. The reminder that everyone has a longing and that everyone has a story has changed the way I will relate to human beings forever." 

- F

"Whatever it is you bring, Rev. Chani will create a place of non-judgement, a place where you will feel safe, seen and heard."

- workshop attendee

Such ministry Rev. Chani extended! They didn't "other" anyone but met each person with authenticity and accurate information. In so doing, Rev. Chani demonstrated a profound lesson to me in setting boundaries and offering compassion - for oneself and one's community.

- workshop attendee

"I felt like Rev. Chani invited me into their sacred space with sharing Jewish rituals with me. I loved each of them. However, I experienced a profound rush of emotions and was moved to tears with no words to express the awe I felt during the Tefflin ritual. My father use to say “tears are the language the mind cannot lay hold of yet." That is how I felt, no words and sacred space. What a generous gift."
