Since graduating from Touro in 2002, Graduate School of Jewish Studies alumnus Rabbi Eliezer Rubin has become Head of School at Livingston, NJ’s co-educational Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy and Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School. His interdisciplinary, philosophically pluralistic approach bridges Orthodox teachings and secular American ideals, in the hopes of sending well-rounded students into the world. Or, as Rubin puts it himself, “I’m very excited about helping children discover themselves while they connect to Jewish values.”
There is a global Jewish community, and each member has the opportunity to share its values with their immediate friends and neighbors. These are ideas held dear by Graduate School of Jewish Studies Class of 1989 graduate Rhonda Lillianthal, who now works as Director of The Center for Jewish Life at JCC Metrowest New Jersey. In that capacity, she also directs a site of the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Lillianthal spends each day helping Jews either rediscover or ignite their spirituality. Her teaching is an extension of the meaningful way that faith guides her own actions.
