Stop by and see what all the excitement is about...
This Shabbat we welcome as scholar in residence the dynamic and engaging Melissa Kapustin, who makes Jewish History come alive. Melissa will be speaking during kiddush following 9AM Shabbat services this Saturday in an interactive presentation called "Escaping Jewish History.
Mrs. Melissa Kapustin taught Jewish History at Ma'ayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls from 2001-2004, during which time she helped to develop the Jewish History curriculum for ninth and tenth grades. She temporarily left Ma'ayanot to earn her J.D. at Rutgers University School of Law, but recently returned to teach Jewish History part time while continuing to pursue her legal career by working as a litigation attorney. In addition to her J.D., Mrs. Kapustin holds a B.A. from Stern College with a major in Judaic Studies and a minor in American Studies, and an M.A. in Modern Jewish History from Bernard Revel Graduate School of Yeshiva University. She has also taught weekly adult education courses in Jewish Law and History at Congregation Etz Chaim in Livingston for the past 12 years.
What a great ride we had this morning, followed by an inspired davening on the beach. Thanks to Alan Benjamin for organizing the ride, and for taking this nice shot. Stay tuned for a followup ride soon!
