Mirit is very excited to join the LCLJ team this year! Mirit came to Central Synagogue from Ansche Chesed, where she taught Hebrew School for four years, and from Camp Ramah in the Berkshires, where she was the Program Coordinator, working on programmatic and engagement aspects of camp. She holds an M.A. in Jewish Education from the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education of the Jewish Theological Seminary. Beforehand, Mirit attended List College where she earned a B.A. in Psychology from Columbia University and a B.A. in the Hebrew Bible and it’s Interpretations from JTS. Throughout her education experiences, she was actively involved in Jewish life on campus, social justice, and community engagement.
Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, Mirit has a deep appreciation for culture and community. She enjoys traveling and exploring the city with family and friends, jamming to music, seeing shows, and playing sports. Mirit is looking forward to an incredible year with Central Synagogue!
