New Beginnings!

I’m so excited to begin this new chapter of my life as the Director of Education at Temple Or Rishon. I am truly passionate about education and I look forward to the challenge of supporting our wonderful teaching staff in educating the children of TOR. In addition to the programming in our religious and Hebrew schools, we are working hard to develop more dynamic offerings for our adult education program. The possibilities are endless and I hope everyone will find a way to enhance their Jewish education at TOR this year.

My hope is to communicate with the congregation through this blog. Each Sunday (and some days in between), I plan to post an update with highlights and guiding questions from our education programs. I encourage everyone to take a minute and read what’s been going on, then ask your kids to further explain and re-teach you! If you have comments or questions, feel free to post below or send me a private email at

Finally, subscribe to the blog by clicking on the blue “W follow” to the right and you’ll automatically get updates when a new post is live.

Thanks again for trusting me and the other teachers at TOR with the education of your kids, and yourself! Here’s to a great school year!
