Jonathan Marx is excited to join the Temple Aliyah team as the Senior Youth Advisor! Jonathan grew up in Chevy Chase, MD and comes to the Boston area after spending the past four years at Yale University in New Haven, CT, where he studied Political Science.

In addition to his work at Temple Aliyah, Jonathan is currently studying at the Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership Program at Brandeis. Jonathan has spent the past eleven summers as a camper, counselor, and senior staff member at Camp Havaya. He is a proud member of the inaugural cohort of the Nachshon Project Graduate Fellowship, which works to develop and grow Jewish professional leaders throughout their undergraduate and graduate school tenure.

When he's not working or studying, Jonathan enjoys playing baseball and basketball and experimenting with new recipes. He's excited to meet you and to find a new home in the Temple Aliyah community!


Originally from Bethesda, MD, David Solkowitz joins Temple Aliyah's staff following his graduation from Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. A Jewish Studies major and Hebrew minor, David looks forward to continuing his journey to becoming a Jewish educator and starting grad school at Hebrew College. 

A proud Jew and avid sports fan, David is always happy and eager to talk Judaism, sports, or just schmooze. 

David looks forward to working with and getting to know the community at Temple Aliyah and is excited to be moving back east.
