News Highlights “Judaism Unbound” Podcast Features Hebrew College Master of Jewish Education Instructor

Did you catch the latest Judaism Unbound episode “Unconditional Love” with host (and Hebrew College IFJE certificate alum) Lex Rofeberg and guest, Ilene Vogelstein, Hebrew College Master of Jewish Education instructor?

The episode features Vogelstein and David Raphael, leaders of the Jewish Grandparents Network, a national organization that educates, connects, and supports grandparents as essential partners in enriching Jewish life. They discuss how, perhaps counter-intuitively, the voices of many Jewish grandparents have been sidelined in Jewish institutional life — along with sharing some ideas about how to shift that reality moving forward.

Ilene Vogelstein taught “Family, School, and Community,” a course  designed to acquaint teachers with the theories, knowledge, skills, and practices of relationship building among families, schools, and communities, for Hebrew College’s Master of Jewish Education program. Vogelstein has both lay and professional experience in the Jewish community. As a volunteer, she was President of our Board of Jewish Education, President of the Pearlstone Retreat Center, and VP of the Darrell Friedman Institute for Professional Development. She is currently on the boards of the Darrell Friedman Institute for Professional Development and Na’aleh. Professionally, she was the founding Coordinator of the Early Childhood Department at the Baltimore Hebrew University and the founding Director of the Early Childhood Department at CAJE. She has a MS in Speech Pathology, a MA in Applied Behavioral Science with a specialty in school change, a graduate certificate in Jewish education, and is a certified infant toddler specialist.
