  • Passover is a time of celebration for the Jewish community. To prepare for Passover, many Jews rid their homes of chametz and thoroughly clean their kitchens to remove all traces of chametz. This process is called kashering. Cedars-Sinai has a kosher kitchen to prepare food for patients who keep kosher, and it too is prepared for Passover.

"There are two kinds of kosher-the kind that is observed year-round, and the kind that is observed at Passover."

  • “When people see something in you and empower you to grow and move ahead, you can accomplish anything.”

    It is very rewarding to make rounds in clinical areas, where I speak with patients to get their feedback and suggestions. I usually do this in my official role, but I also interact with patients on weekends when I volunteer with my labradoodle Cooper in the Barbara Cowen POOCH Volunteer Program.
