SaritShalom TCS community,
I am so excited to be back! As many of you know, I was a teacher at TCS religious school (before it was “Sulam”) for 7 years. In the summer of 2011, I left TCS to take on a full time job as Director of Education at Temple Beth Torah in Holliston, where I remained for the past 7 years.

I was born and raised in Israel where my family moved between Dimona – a little town in the Negev Desert – to Kibbutz Ginosar (which my grandparents founded) on the shore of Lake Kineret (also known as “Lake of Galilee”). I moved to the USA in the early 90’s, and studied at Bridgewater State College. I completed my studies at Bridgewater with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a second major in Art.

I have a brother and sister (twins!) who still live in Israel with their spouses and children. I also have a sister who lives in Foxboro MA, and works as a Jewish educator at Temple Beth Shalom in Needham. My husband David is an Art Director at Dana Farber Cancer Institute where he has worked for 15 years. Our son Ben (18) is heading to Bristol Community College in the fall where he plans to explore various career options before transferring to a four-year college. Our son Ethan (14) is heading into his 4th year at the Bay State Learning Center for Self-Directed Learners in Dedham, where he studies and pursues his academic interests. We live in Attleboro and have two cats named Poppy and Daisy who have the perfect combination of playfulness and snuggles.

In my work as a Jewish Educator, I love finding new and exciting ways to engage children of all ages in Jewish topics, in thinking about who they are as Jewish people, and in passing on the wonderful values, traditions and customs of our people. I look forward to working with the TCS community to continue building on the wonderful education program that is in place, and to move this program into the future with continued innovative and exciting ways to meet the community’s needs.

I hope I get to meet you before the beginning of the school year. Please come by my newly arranged office to say hi!
