MEET OUR DIRECTOR
Beth Michell is our Director of Bar/Bat Mitzvah Prep at Ramat Shalom. She became a part of the Ramat Shalom family when her daughter was two and attended the Early Childhood Center. Beth holds a degree in Special Education and taught in the public system before joining the Ramat Shalom faculty. For many years, Beth taught in our Early Childhood Center, nurturing the youngest members of our synagogue family.
Prior to becoming our Education Director in 2005, Beth was a teacher in our Torah School. Under her direction and guidance, our Torah School continues to provide our children with a wonderful Jewish education that instills within them a sense of great pride and love for Jewish learning, the Jewish people and our synagogue community. Beth insures that our Torah School faculty, many of whom are long-time members of our community, works to convey a sense of joy and celebration of Judaism, rigor in learning, and openness to questioning.
The learning process focuses on developing an appreciation of Jewish history, customs, beliefs, language, ritual, and other teachings through a creative, engaging classroom experience. Beth is a wonderful guide and offers a great deal of support for our community.
