Meet Sarah Lauing, Beth Am's new Director of Learning and Educational Innovation. In this new position, Sarah will oversee all congregational youth education programs, and work with our program directors to integrate and innovate our youth education efforts.

Since then, she earned a Master's in Jewish Education from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and served as a Youth and Family Educator at Temple Shaaray Tefila in New York. She also served as Associate Director of URJ Crane Lake Camp in Stockbridge, MA, where she directed the camp's educational program. Recently she received the AVICHAI Award for Excellence in Jewish Education at Camp.

On the first day of Sunday Program, September 8, all parents are invited to a gathering at 9:15 AM on the Social Hall Patio for an opportunity to welcome Sarah. Additional opportunities to welcome Sarah to our community and get to know her will be announced as they become available. Contact Sarah at sarah_lauing@betham.org.
