Owner Deborah Bodin Cohen

Debbie is an award-winning children's author, rabbi and educator. She is a Maryland native, but lived in many different places before resettling in the DC area.  Debbie and her husband David, a journalist, are joyfully raising their three children in Rockville.  A rather loud Collie named Indigo completes the family.
