Beatrice (Wallins) Lawrence
Koranee (Molkner) Peppe

After graduation, I worked for the Greater Miami Jewish Federation in Community Relations and Public Policy. I got married to Jim Peppe and moved to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. We then spent a short time in Manhattan and are finally settled in Potomac, Maryland. Recently, I had a baby girl, Julia Brooke Peppe (May 4, 2004). I will be returning to work full-time shortly at the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, doing Leadership Development and Synagogue/Federation Relations. (July 2004)

Class of 1999

Gabrielle Pieck
Louis Reinstein

After graduation I joined the faculty at the David Posnack Hebrew Day School in Plantation, FL, where I taught for 4 years.  It is the same school where I went to elementary school. I primarily taught Jewish History, Jewish Studies, and a special class on Israel. I also helped lead the 8th grade on a 2-week study trip to Israel for 3 of the 4 years. I left teaching last year and I have just finished my first year of Nova Southeastern Law School.  During the summer I interned at the State Attorney's Office of the 17th Judicial Circuit, covering Broward County. I have served on the Board of the Central Agency for Jewish Education for three years; I have also served on Temple Beth Israel's Board of Directors for 2 years. This summer I got engaged to Adi Menachem. I met her in law school, she is a year ahead of me in law school. (July 2004)

Barbara Rosenblit

While I was getting my degree I was teaching, initially at Epstein and then at the Weber School. I continue to teach at Weber. I have an unpublished paper on Dante and gematria that I worked on while I was  in Siena, Italy, where I went to study Dante under National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) funding in 2002. This year I received a Teacher Leadership Award from NEH, which funded a Weber faculty course on Dante conducted in conjunction with faculty members from the Marist School. (Dr. David Blumenthal was one of our guest speakers; he lectured on Maimonides' philosophy.) Last fall, I spoke at the Jewish Women's Archive Board Retreat. Part of the lecture revolved around two exhibitions of artworks by Weber seniors in the Jewish Women course, which have been exhibited at the Marcus Jewish Community Center and at the Selig Center. Most recently, I also wrote the International Day of Study midrash section on Ruth for the Women's League of Conservative Judaism, published this spring. I was notified a few weeks ago that I had won the 2004 Covenant Award. (July 2004)

Class of 2000

Daniel Berke

After graduating from the JSMA Program, I found a job at Marietta's Temple Kol Emeth as the Youth and Family Services Director. I created a high school level educational program with about 100 students. I learned Torah and Haftarah cantillation in order to tutor students for B'nai Mitzvah. After three years at Kol Emeth and gaining real mastery of cantillation, I decided I would contact all area Temples and offer my services as a B'nai Mitzvah and Hebrew tutor.

The tutoring business exploded, but in 2005 I returned to the academic world in the Tel Aviv “TASP” (Teach and Study Program; www.tasp.org.il), in order to expand the kinds of material I could teach. The basic requirements of the program are to teach English to middle school students in Tel Aviv, and pursue an MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at Tel Aviv. My experience in Israel was incredible and it was very hard to leave. I did return home to be closer to my then 101-year-old grandfather (he is now 103 and doing well!). Within a few months of being home, I met the love of my life and we were married in November 2008. I still tutor for B’nai Mitzvah on a limited basis, but I have been teaching ESL at the Atlanta English Institute (www.atlei.com) since January 2008 and was recently promoted to the position of Academic Provost. I design and enhance our curriculum, supervise and support instructors, and still manage to teach each day. The JSMA Program was quite challenging but without it I doubt I would be where I am today.

Nehama Benmosche

After graduation, I relocated to a suburb of New York City and began working on course work at the Jewish Theological Seminary. I am currently enrolled in the EdD program. I have finished my course work and I am beginning to work on my comprehensive exams and my dissertation. I will be working next year as the family education and youth director at the Reform Temple of Suffern, Shir Shalom. I will also be continuing my work as a consultant and curriculum writer at the Interfaith Community of Manhattan and working with Project ENGAJE, an adult education program for pre-school teachers. I live in Suffern, New York with my partner, Jennifer, and our 2 dogs and 4 cats. (July 2004)

Joshua Peskin

Josh is a doctoral candidate in Stanford University's Department of Religious Studies, specializing in modern Jewish thought and philosophy. He hopes to finish in Spring of 2008.

Linda Sherer
Martin Wein

I moved to Israel even before my graduation in 2001 and was awarded the Kreitman Fellowship at Ben Gurion University, Beer Sheva. I have been working on my dissertation on Jews under the rule of Czech nationalism (1897-1953) since fall 2001. My advisers are Guli Ne'eman Arad and Dan Diner (Hebrew University). I presented my research at the EAJS in Amsterdam in 2002, participated at the Minerva Summer School at the Simon Dubnow Institute in Leipzig in 2003, and held papers at the Czech-Jewish Symposium and the AIS in Jerusalem in 2004. Two articles based on these papers will be published in 2004/2005. I received awards from the Pazi Foundation for Bohemian Jewish History in 2002 and 2003 . (July 2004)

Julie is a 2010 graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC) in Philadelphia. She is currently the Rabbi and Education Director at Temple B'nai Abraham in Bordertown, NJ, where she has served in various capacities for the last four years.  While at RRC, Julie also served other communities in the roles of service leader, cantor, and teacher. Julie did a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education at Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta, GA, and was a chaplaincy intern for two years with Jewish Family and Children's Service of Philadelphia.

Caroline Riegel

Immediately after graduation in May 2002 I went to Amman, Jordan for a dig, and then into the Archaeology PhD program at Boston University. I have since switched career paths! I was Promotions Coordinator for three radio stations at Entercom Boston until November 2003, when I then accepted the position of Promotions Director for two radio stations at Good Karma Broadcasting in Madison, Wisconsin. I am currently living in the city known as "Berkeley of the Midwest," and I have developed a passion for Cheese, Miller Beer, and Green Bay. (July 2004)

Sally Chambers
Jakub Kakietek
Angela Riccetti (J.D./M.A.)

Immediately after graduation from the joint JD/MA program, I began studying for the Georgia bar exam.  I took it in July of 2003 and thereafter worked as an investigator for the Dekalb County Child Advocacy Center.  In November of 2003 I was sworn in as an attorney, and in February of 2004 I began work as a staff attorney for the Atlanta Legal Aid Society.  I'm currently preparing to transfer to Legal Aid's Family Law unit.  I have not done much writing outside of legal briefs and memos lately; however, part of my master's thesis will be published in a book released through the Law and Religion program at Emory's School of Law.  I also married my partner Ansley Yeomans on April 4, 2004.  We live in Decatur with our animal menagerie.  (July 2004)

Class of 2004

Karyn Berger

After graduating, I spent the summer at the University of Haifa in Israel, after first spending two weeks in the Netherlands. While in the Netherlands, I had the incredible opportunity to go to the Portuguese synagogue in the old Jewish quarter in Amsterdam, visit the Westerbork Detainment camp, and to see the new photo exhibit that Otto Frank took of his daughters before the Nazi occupation of Holland. While in Israel, I studied Hebrew for 8 weeks; during my time there, two friends and I travelled to Turkey and spent some time with the Jewish community there--an incredible journey in and of itself. I returned after Ulpan to begin studying Medieval Hebrew and Arabic poetry with Dr. Ray Scheindlin at Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. I was ordained as a rabbi at the Aleph Rabbinic Conference in Boulder, Colorado in January.

Elise Jarvis

After completing the Masters Program in Jewish Studies in the spring of 2004, I moved to Washington, D.C., where I accepted the position of Assistant Director of Law Enforcement Outreach at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a civil rights organization dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred and intolerance.  I am responsible for the implementation of Law Enforcement and Society, a training program developed by the Anti-Defamation League and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum that trains police officers and all new FBI agents. The training addresses the challenges law enforcement professionals face as they try to maintain a balance between fighting terrorism and protecting people's civil rights and individual liberties. I am also responsible for organizing and managing ADL's Advanced Training School,a course on extremist and terrorist threats designed for senior level law enforcement personnel. The course provides law enforcement professionals at the federal, state and local levels with information, resources and contacts to increase their ability to combat domestic and international terrorist threats. (January 2005)

I thought you might like to know that I've accepted a position in the Jewish Studies track of the Religious Studies Ph.D. program at Stanford University beginning this fall.  I'll be working with Midrash and Rabbinic Literature under Dr. Charlotte Fonrobert and, to some extent, looking at the relationship between early Rabbinic culture and the greater Greco-Roman social context of late antiquity with Dr.. Steven Weitzman.  I'll also have the opportunity to take classes with Dr. Daniel Boyarin at Berkeley. (April 2009)

Nate Hofer

Nate attended the Lehmann workshop at the Center for Advanced Jewish Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. From June until May 2008, Nate was in Damascus, Syria, studying Arabic language on a fellowship provided by the Center for Arabic Study Abroad (CASA).
