Education Director MiraLeah Colflesh with her husband and daughter. Tzedek v'Shalom, Newtown's Jewish Reconstructionist synagogue, has announced the appointment of MiraLeah Colflesh as the congregation's first Education Director.
Colflesh comes the position with rich experience in Jewish education. She has taught in both Conservative and Reconstructionist synagogues, as well as serving as Israel Specialist at a JCC camp. In addition, she has been an advisor for a teen leadership program. Colflesh is currently enrolled in Gratz College in the Masters in Jewish Education program, with an emphasis on teaching and administration.

Over the summer Mira has met with Tzedek v'Shalom's education chairpeople and teachers, preparing for the upcoming year. Rabbi Sigal Dagan Brier, the congregation's rabbi, has also coordinated efforts with the new Education Director, laying out plans for the year that mesh with the community's other educational, spiritual, and social action efforts. The hiring of an Education Director both enhances the Tzedek v'Shalom's educational program by providing a professional director for the school and frees Rabbi Brier for other synagogue work. -- Naomi Mindlin, Tzedek v'Shalom.
