A few fun things to know about Rabbi Marko and Marie…
Rabbi Marko enjoys motorcycling, learning new languages, wood-working (with an emphasis on Jewish ritual objects and synagogue furniture), bicycling, playing guitar, theater, Jewish summer camp, and creating international kosher cuisine. He is also a certified scuba divemaster!
Marie enjoys gardening and, is in fact, a Master Gardener. She is also the world’s best safta (grandmother in Hebrew), and makes a mean chile relleno.
Together, they enjoy world travel, all things Israel, and time with family. They are both very excited about beginning this new chapter.
Rabbi Marko says “We're just regular people, hopefully the kind of people you'd want to grab a beer or a coffee with. We can only be us... just Matt and Marie!''
