Hebrew School Brunch


Sunday, January 31st  10:30AM


Dear Chevre,

Together, we can continue to invest in the future of our children and in the future of Judaism, by planting the seeds today.  Our Hebrew School has many outstanding features to support this goal.  Our students learn together in small classes that are creative and challenging, designed with a keen appreciation for, and understanding of, various learning styles.

At Town & Village Hebrew School, we provide accessible quality Jewish education for all of our students.  All families are welcome at T&V regardless of their financial situation. This year alone Town & Village Synagogue provided $50,868 in needs-based assistance. This helps 65% of our Hebrew School families.  Scholarship awards are in addition to the basic funding needed to run our school, which is heavily supported by the synagogue’s general budget.

This Tu Bishvat, help up grow our school. Our 7th Annual Hebrew School Brunch will be held on January 31, 2016 where we will honor our wonderful teachers who dedicate themselves to the education of our children. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased online at www.tinyurl.com/tandvcw or by check. If you would like to pay by check, please fill out this form and send it in with your payment.

Meet Our Honorees

Jodi Bleier Eliasson

Jodi Eliasson has been a member of the Hebrew School faculty for the past seven years. She earned her BA in History and Judaic Studies at Brandeis University and MA in Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University and truly enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for Judaism and the state of Israel with her students.

She teaches Hebrew School at a number of other Jewish institutions in the city. During the summer, she is a teacher on the education staff at Ramah Day Camp in Nyack. She and her family live on the Upper East Side but make the trek downtown in order to be part of the warm and enlightened congregation that is found at Town and Village Synagogue.


Ken Leeds

Ken has been working at the Town and Village Hebrew School for  last 18 years where he teaches the Hey class. Ken has a passion for Jewish History and shares his love and interest with each student. He is the founder and leader of T&V’s 4 year history curriculum, Through Our Jewish Lens: Jewish History Overview.

Ken is also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and is a psychotherapist in his own office in lower Manhattan and in a group practice in Park Slope.  Ken lives in Park Slope and is a co-parent to his 15 year old daughter Alana.

Stefanie Halpern

Stef has been the Gan teacher at T&V for the past six years and can be seen carrying around story books and art supplies because she believes that Sunday morning Hebrew School should be filled with fun (but the learning kind of fun).  When she is not helping her students make awesome Jewish-themed arts and crafts projects (that always relate to a holiday or parasha, of course), Stef can be found studying in the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary where she is a  PhD candidate in Jewish Literature.  She’s got a particular interest in Yiddish theater, which makes her grandparents very proud.
