Meet an Innovator: Rabbi Jennifer Goldsmith

Jennifer is a Communal Education Consultant for the Department of Congregational Learning at The Jewish Education Project focusing on Westchester County where she works to ignite and connect congregations on their paths toward innovation. Her work includes consulting to innovating congregations, building and supporting networks and helping direct the Express Innovation grant initiative.

I love that I get the chance to work in partnership with amazing congregations and colleagues to help shape the future of Jewish education by promoting innovative, engaging, creative models of learning in our area synagogues.

She started to work in the field of Jewish education at the age of sixteen when she taught her first class of 2nd graders at her home synagogue in Ann Arbor, MI. She felt like her supplementary Jewish education had not been as creative and engaging as it could have been so she was bound and determined to make the experience better for other learners. After working for a few years post college, Jennifer studied at HUC-JIR receiving rabbinic ordination and her master’s  in Jewish Education in 2007. She has worked as the Director of Life Long Learning at Larchmont Temple, has taught both children and adults at a number of Westchester County synagogues and teaches Torah to three and four year olds weekly at Kol Ami in White Plains.
