Utilizing her Master of Jewish Education degree from American Jewish University, she has also held positions at several local synagogues as a Hebrew and Judaica teacher for children and adults as well as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah coordinator and director of education. She has also worked with several Jewish day and residential camps across California, including several years as the Camp Educator for our own Camp Menorah.
Her daughter Miriam is in the Parpar class at Tuvia, and her son Matan is a Tuvia alum and a student in the religious school. Rebeccah expects to be ordained as a rabbi at the Academy for Jewish Religion in May of 2017.
