A Maryland native, Kfirah earned her B.A. at the University of Maryland before making aliyah to Israel, where she earned her M.A. in Art Therapy at the University of Haifa.

With her experience as a child therapist, she is especially interested and engaged in the social emotional development happening in our classrooms. With a strong connection to her Jewish values and identity, Kfirah believes in building a community of acceptance, engagement, and love of learning. She is excited to be returning this fall for her second year as Director of the RJW ECC.
