Our Staff

The FiDi Hebrew School prides itself in our staff.  Staff members are imbued with a desire to impart their love and knowledge of Judaism to their students.  Recognizing that Hebrew School is an academic after-school program in addition to their regular school hours, our teachers endeavor to create an engaging program that keeps the interest of the child.

I am honored to be the lead teacher in FiDi Hebrew School. I am originally from Rockaway NJ and now live in Brooklyn. I love to cook, travel, and hike with friends. I am always ready for a good time! 

I graduated from Machon Alte teacher's Seminary in Israel and am currently furthering my studies in Special Education & Psychology. 

For the past four years, I have taught in three Hebrew Schools across the Tri-State area, and I am super excited for what’s in store this year at FiDi Hebrew School. I am truly looking forward to an awesome year of Jewish learning, fun, and growth!

I grew up in Basking Ridge, NJ, along with my parents and seven siblings. We moved there to create a warm, Jewish community.
I have had the amazing privilege to work in many Hebrew Schools around the world, including South Africa! I am so happy to be teaching at the FiDi Hebrew School this year!
