Director of Youth and Family Education
Scott joined the Beth El team in July 2015. He discovered his Jewish professional path after graduating from SUNY–Albany with a B.A. in communication with dual minors in business and Hebrew language.
Scott feels learning is best supported through a “Jewish journey” model of education where the world is our classroom and learning extends beyond the reach of the temple walls. It is this unique model that he brings to our “BE InSpirEd!” education program at Beth El. He uses song-leading to engage families on Sunday mornings as he leads a morning service before the start of classes. He is an avid technophile and he incorporates gadgets and techie toys as a way to support in-class learning.
Scott hopes to instill in others what Judaism has in him: a sense of guidance, joy, community, and a strong framework for life. He lives in Natick with his wife Andrea and children Gabriel, and Eliyana, both of whom are enrolled in the “BE InSpirEd!” program at Beth El.
