My first religious school experience was in an old, dark and moldy building in New York City. We all sat, hands crossed, petrified to share or speak, 2 hours a day, 5 afternoons a week. It was then I thought to myself, there has got to be a better way! And so, 10 years later, when I chose my profession, I committed myself to improving the plight of Jewish education for children. Since then it has been a learning experience every year. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, there is another issue or idea evolving.
Zach is no stranger to Kol Emet. In 2015, he worked as the office administrator while studying at Penn State University. After receiving degrees in Business Administration and Accounting, Zach moved to Florida in 2016 where he took on an internship at Walt Disney World. After much success working with The Walt Disney Company, Zach couldn’t stay away from the Kol Emet community and decided in 2017 that it was time to come back.
Zach has a passion for working hard. To succeed as the Congregational Administrator, he utilizes various skills from his background in the customer service, retail, and fine dining industries. The outgoing Executive Director, Robert Frey, has done wonders for this congregation and set us up for the future. Zach has worked closely with him before he retired and looks forward to picking up where he left off. Zach says, “One of my priorities here at Kol Emet is to make everyone who walks into our building feel welcomed and part of our community. I’m excited to bring everything I know to the table.”
