A Message from Kathy

I am tremendously excited to be joining Jewish LearningWorks.  In my tenure as a leader in Jewish education, I have been most moved by those moments in which I have been able to inspire others to grow their skills and passion for the sacred responsibility of being a Jewish educator. I have seen those sparks of creativity, confidence, and joy galvanize the work of Jewish educators. I look forward to bringing my expertise to a tremendously dedicated and bright team that believes that lighting and fueling those sparks has the power to make a difference in the lives of learners, and the world they are creating.
