Saul Zebovitz ’11 received the “20/20 - The Future Is Clear” award at the 59th Annual Jewish Educators Assembly Conference in Philadelphia in late January. The award honors 20 emerging leaders in Jewish education from the greater Philadelphia Jewish community who are in their 20’s. Zebovitz, a Jewish studies major from Elkins Park, Pa., plans to study for his masters in Jewish education next year at the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Manhattan.

“Ideally, I want to work as an elementary teacher in a Jewish day school,” says Zebovitz, who has been teaching religious classes since his freshman year to fourth graders at the Upper Valley Jewish Community, a congregation based at Dartmouth’s Roth Center for Jewish Life. “I finished the teacher education program at Dartmouth for elementary education, which was an amazing experience. I’m really honored because, if I do become a Jewish day school teacher, I will be associated with the Jewish Educators Assembly.”
The Jewish Educators Assembly is a professional organization that promotes excellence among educators dedicated to conservative Jewish education.
