I am excited be on an amazing journey with all the awesome children, teens, families and community members of Nevei Kodesh. I am a Master of Jewish Education with an emphasis in experiential education from Hebrew College, where I graduated this past year as a Legacy Fellow. My first introduction into Jewish Renewal was as the director of ALEPH Kids Kallah, developing an experiential summer program. My additional experience is in curriculum development, teaching, classroom management, creating organizational systems, service leading and marketing as a long-time Religious School Director, B'nai Mitzvah coordinator, teacher and Early Childhood Director. Developing and fostering an innovative Religious School and family life programs while learning with so many bright students, enthusiastic staff and wonderful families is what I love. I bring my expertise and love for this community and Jewish learning to our Nevei Kodesh community. As for my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my husband, awesome five children, our bunny, two dogs, Beta fish and grand-dog, Zuko. I am an avid Harry Potter fan, love baking bread, enjoy mystical things and being outdoors, especially on the water. I am also really excited about our upcoming year here at Nevei Kodesh.
