Combining Jennifer's strong background in Jewish education and Scott's years at Camp Harlam, the Peace Garden easily adapts to Jewish settings. During a typical week long residency we develop a theme with the community - often based on a Text or a Jewish value. Through music and art, we create an original song and turn the song in to a mural! At the end of the residency the school/synagogue/community center receives not only their original song, but a beautiful and permament (or portable banner style) mural.
Jennifer is currently the Director of Education at Temple Sholom, a Reform Congregation in Scotch Plains, NJ. She is a graduate of The Leadership Institute, a three year leadership training program co-sponsored by JTS and HUC. During her career, she has been the Director of Education at the Kane Street Synagogue in Brooklyn, Temple B'nai Abraham in Oakland, Ca and Temple Emanu-El in Closter, NJ. She received her BA in Jewish studies from UMASS/Amherst and studied for one year at The Pardes Institute in Israel.
