Mira Berzofsky, known to our students and families as “Morah Mira”, is excited to be entering her 6th year as Education Director of Congregation Tifereth Israel. This year is particularly exciting as we are launching our new experimental approach to the Jewish learning adventure–Jewish Learning Lab. This new approach incorporates the elements of Mira’s personal educational philosophy. It emphasizes the opportunity for students (and teachers) to make personal meaning from our Tradition. We also emphasize the relationships between teachers and their students and students with each other, as vital to creating the environment where that learning can occur. She strives to get to know each student as an individual, as well as their parents, and to meet them where they are, as individuals and as a family.
Mira is recently married to Eric Berzofsky, a joyous event that they were glad to share with our TI community. She is loving mother of her daughter, Naomi, and stepsons, Yair and Avi.
