his summers he was a camper and counselor at Camp Kawaga, a summer residential

Greg received his bachelor's degree from Boston University,

three-day education conference, and made field visits to many congregations
across the South. In two years, Greg made over fifty weekend visits to a dozen
congregations from northern Arkansas to central Georgia.
Upon completing his two-year fellowship, Greg moved to Jerusalem
to begin his rabbinic studies at HUC. After one year there, he came to Los
