Shabbat provides a wonderful opportunity to communicate to our children the joy and wonder of living Jewishly in the modern world. As the Shabbat Educator, Devora Rohr brings the joy of her own Jewish childhood to Temple Aliyah families through Shabbat services and programs, using traditional and innovative liturgy, song, stories, puppetry, games, and more. Devora was raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia in the local Solomon Shechter Day School and Camp Ramah in the Poconos. Devora’s connection to Israel was enhanced when she spent a semester of high school at Tichon Ramah Yerushalim (Ramah High School in Jerusalem), and then junior year abroad at Hebrew University. Since graduating from Mount Holyoke College, Devora served with City Year Boston in a K-8 school in Roxbury, worked at Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland as the Education Office Administrator, and is currently enrolled in the Masters of Jewish Education at Hebrew College.  Devora and her wife Stephanie live in Newton with their inquisitive and extroverted child, Yona Aliza.  Email Devora Rohr.
