Ellen holds a Joint Masters degree in Jewish Education and Jewish Communal Service from Hebrew Union College. Since receiving her Masters degree, family and early childhood education have been the focus of her work. From 2003-2008, Ellen was the educator at Congregation Beth Am in Los Altos Hills, CA. There she ran a weekly family education program, Hebrew school and helped to establish Gan Ami, the synagogue preschool. For the last two years, Ellen served as the Assistant Director at the Peninsula Jewish Community Center preschool. Her passion for Jewish early childhood education is based on the belief that the core mission of this work is to help children grow and to inspire families to embark on Jewish journeys.
