Teacher of the Year

Mazel Tov to Ari Steinberg, Teacher of the Year for the 2022-2023/5783 School Year!

"Teaching at the religious school here at Kol Ami is truly a pleasure. I adore the community and all the people involved, it is amazing to be able to teach the 8th and 9th grade classes. It's a place where we can have a place to learn about Judaism, determine what it means to the students, and explore Jewish history. I also teach the 7th grade class on Saturdays where we study the Parsha. While it is painfully early for a college student, it is a ton of fun to teach these kids and get their thoughts and opinions on the Parshas. I can never predict what opinion or take on the information they are going to have next. The last thing that has truly made this a wonderful experience is stepping into the role of Kol Ami Jewish Youth (KAJY) Director; which means I get to spend time learning and exploring Judaism while going on adventures, playing games, and trying new things with the kids. I can’t wait to have them in my classes as they grow older. I am honored to be chosen as the Teacher of the Year and can’t truly express how much it means to me."  —Ari Steinberg
