*Meet Nancy Gorod.

With ten years of experience working with children at Camp Ramah Darom as an Educator, Nancy continues a new kind of religious education at Congregation Shearith Israel.  Experiential learning – check.  Hebrew education – check.  Israeli cooking – check.  Jewish cultural learning – check.

In addition, she leads several adult education classes for the congregation focused on modern Jewish life and culture.  Twice monthly, she conducts both family and adult learning services on Shabbat, providing for a more intimate setting for Jewish learning.

Nancy is a graduate of The Jewish Theological Seminary and has a BA from Tufts University in Medford, MA.  Today, she serves on the Atlanta Education Directors Council and as a board member for the Jewish Educators Assembly.

She incorporates her experience, particularly her Jewish Summer Camp experience, into our Machaneh Shai children’s education program keeping our kids engaged and having fun, while still learning Hebrew and understanding traditional Jewish culture and topics.

It’s not the same as the Sunday School and Hebrew School that you attended.  It’s better.
