It is important for Jewish teens to get together to discuss issues that can impact us in today’s world. I was a Merkaz graduate and it added a lot to my high school experience educationally and socially.

Bachelors: Broadcast Journalism

Masters: Elementary Education

CT certified teacher

Teacher; B’nai Israel Grades 5,6,7, 2nd Year at Merkaz

“When Merkaz began in 1980, I was among the first group of students…I hope that my students and my children will learn, engage, think, debate, socialize, and continue to form a strong Jewish identity, just like we did in the 80’s.”
