Rev. LF


I have worked with Denise for the majority of my rabbinical career – nearly a decade. She is receptive, thoughtful, perceptive, and extremely well- rounded. Her long tenure within the industry gives her unique insight and invaluable experience that makes her a wonderful mentor, colleague, and friend. I am lucky to have her in my corner and look forward to her continued guidance and support as I continue in my professional journey.


Achieve Goals

I highly recommend Rabbi Denise Eger as a coach. Rabbi Eger helped me clarify, not only my goals but, also, the process by which to achieve them. She always offered support and encouragement while not hesitating to ask the difficult questions, a beautiful combination. She is, of course, highly knowledgeable about and experienced in the rabbinate, so is able to give invaluable insights about the field. I looked forward to seeing her warm smile and greeting each time I logged onto Zoom. I am so grateful to have worked with her.
