Elizheva Hurvich

As the New Youth and Family Education Director, my role is to structure and set the vision for youth engagement and education at Congregation Netivot Shalom. My role is to engage and nurture our young learners (birth to age 18), and their families during Shabbat and holidays, in weekly programs, through both formal and informal learning. We are a warm, open community with diverse backgrounds and religious practices, so cultivating community and building meaningful bridges from diversity is a key part of my work.

I work closely with the Rabbi, with parents, and with the teaching staff to create opportunities that are meaningful, Jewish and engaging.
