Amy is a remarkable educator who brings a unique depth of knowledge, perspective, and learning to all her work. As a Comprehensive Sexuality Educator, Amy skillfully creates learning experiences that allow students to connect deeply with the content, with each other, and with themselves. In creating and leading Mount Zion Temple’s Sacred Choices Program, Amy wove together human experience, history, science, Judaism, and modern context with creativity to design an experience that allows teens to gain confidence in their understanding of human sexuality within a context of Jewish values and relationships. The teens leave the program with a greater ability to navigate sex, sexuality, and relationships in their own lives and the knowledge of resources available to them when needed.
— Liza Henry, Youth Engagement Director Mount Zion Temple

Friends Forever 
Two Jewish girls become friends across time when modern-day Hannah suddenly appears in her own Saint Paul yard . . . in 1912. Thirteen-year-old Abigail tells the story of that amazing day and the encounter that changed both their lives forever. Against the backdrop of the Progressive Era, as youth joined with adults and hotly debated women's right to vote, worker's rights, and racial equality, Abigail and Hannah must solve their own problem: How will Hannah get back to her own time?
