Jew V'Nation Fellow: Jewish Community School

Magda Reyes

jvn1.jpgMagda is currently the Director of Education at Har Sinai Temple in Pennington, New Jersey. She enjoys interacting with students and families at the Religious School, brain-storming with the teaching staff and introducing new ideas into the curriculum.  She also thoroughly enjoys her involvement in the women’s events at the temple and has been known to bring her drum to their services.

The product of a partnership between a Reform and Conservative synagogue, the new Jewish Community School in Pennington, NJ, seeks to provide supplemental Jewish education to an increasingly interfaith community that has been reticent to join the formal synagogue community. Magda’s project is focused on developing an outreach strategy to encourage families to participate in Jewish education that feels open, warm, and inviting to interfaith families.
