"During the decades that I have been a congregant of Rabbi Evas at N'vay Shalom, she has shown great compassion during times of illness and loss, which has been a source of solace. It speaks volumes to her insight that she not only brings to moments of celebration but to times of confusion and grief."

I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for officiating at the funeral for Sandi Saunders. The entire immediate family (individually and as a group) appreciated your voice, your kind, soothing words, and though you did not know Sandi personally, you did a fantastic job pulling info from our discussion prior. Most importantly, we all agreed it was exactly as Sandi would want. Exactly. Because of this, we were able to begin the mourning process fully and without a hitch. Thank you again, so very much.”

"Rabbi Eva was an incredible teacher to our son and created a truly meaningful service and experience for our family...very grateful for the incredible experience of working with her.

"What a delightful and insightful workshop. Rabbi Eva's thoughts about the meaning of 'Pesach' and its celebration, provided much food for thought regarding looking within ourselves and letting go of that which continues to pull us down and stay stuck where we are. She inspired us all to be able to free ourselves from that which binds us in our own personal slavery."

"Rabbi Eva came to teach our 5th grade students about the intersection of mindful practice and Jewish spirituality. The students were very excited to learn about a different way to access their Judaic practice; what she taught them really made an impact on them. They are already asking for when she can come back!"

"Rabbi Eva provides a safe intimate space where those she teaches in our Torah study group learn, grow and heal together. Through her detailed and in-depth teaching of the parshah we learn life lessons and become stronger mentally and spiritually. She is truly an amazing woman. To know her is a blessing in my life."

"It was meant to be that I should take your meditation class in the Spring of 2010, not knowing that two months later you would be one of the most important people during my 'knee-replacement journey.' Thank you for showing up and reframing the dark with your Reiki work and unconditional love and support. Teaching me how to breathe based on Jewish principles has expanded my sense of gratitude and connection with the Holy One."
