Jodie holds a dual masters in Jewish Education and Hebrew Bible from The Jewish Theological Seminary.
Rebecca Ruberg serves as a Teen Education and Engagement consultant, and has previously held a number of positions focused on engaging teens and young adults in meaningful Jewish experiences.

Roundtables are an invaluable tool that connect me with other youth professionals in my area. Being able to talk and listen to others has allowed me to see what works and doesn’t work for others. I’ve been able to take that knowledge and those connections back to my temple. That, plus, the Generation Now study, which has been a part of the roundtables has helped me understand my teens better and has helped me refocus my program to fall in line with what they need.
