Arielle’s passion for Jewish education was shaped by her experiences growing up in the Conservative movement, participating in youth groups, spending many summers at Jewish camp both as a camper and counselor, and time with her family. She is deeply committed to empowering learners in their educational experience by following their lead. Since she joined Temple Israel Center in 2017, her goal has been to create a hands-on, multi-sensory, cooperative learning environment that challenges individuals of all ages and abilities to develop their Jewish identities. An educator for more than 12 years, Arielle obtained a B.A. at UMASS Amherst, a Masters in Elementary Education from CUNY Hunter College and a permanent teaching certificate in Early Childhood education.
