Rebecca Berger
Senior Director of Education

Rebecca oversees IKAR’s Children’s and Family programming, including Bite Size Shabbat, the Early Childhood Center, Limudim, Little Mensches Justice Events and  Teens. She works closely with our incredible education teams – Dr. Jane Rosen, Beth Weisman, and Jenny Weston at the ECC, and Tamara Joseph and Alex Brooks for Limudim and Teens – to accompany our children and families on their Jewish journeys.  

As an IKAR member for over 15 years with her husband Stephen, Rebecca is thrilled to bring her experience and passion as an educator to her beloved IKAR community. Rebecca earned her Master of Arts in Jewish Education at Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion and is an alumna and mentor in the DeLeT program, a Jewish teacher credentialing program for Jewish day school teachers. Rebecca participated in the Institute for Experiential Jewish Education Senior Educators Cohort and the Mandel Educational Leadership Program. Before IKAR, she was the Assistant Educational Director and Judaic Studies teacher at Sinai Akiba Academy. When Rebecca isn’t teaching, she loves hiking, playing violin, reading, Israeli dancing, and hanging with her daughters, Maya and Samara.
