Our Youth Education Director

“We have confidence that the Sunday school mirrors our beliefs, and we appreciate that it encourages our children to think critically and always to question.”

 — Ilana S., Deerfield

"My goal for having my children go to Sunday School was to learn about where they come from because they have a mixed background. So if they ever needed to make a choice about who and what they are, they would have some basis for doing so. And I think they have that."

 — Susan G., Highland Park
