“Who is wise? One who learns from all people.” — Pirkei Avot
My name is Jaclyn Leibowitz and I am excited to be a part of the Temple Micah family! I believe one of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the gift of a Jewish education. Every child is unique and precious, and everyone has something important to share. I want to encourage our children to engage with our tradition, to stay focused on their studies, and to always remember that their work is sacred, their relationships loving, and the knowledge they acquire is part of a greater whole that transforms lives.
I graduated from Montclair State University with my degree in Education and went back to school to receive a Master’s Degree in Teachers of Students with Disabilities. I am currently a 6th grade Special Education teacher in West Windsor/Plainsboro Regional Schools. I strive to build connections with students, parents, and the community as a whole.
Prior to becoming Religious School Director at Temple Micah, I was Religious School Director at Congregation Torat El, located in Deal, New Jersey for five years. During my time there, I was also a Religious School Teacher and Hebrew High School Teacher.
As Education Director, I support and encourage our students to feel a part of their learning process and growth. Judaism has been a part of my life and I look forward to sharing my passion with you! My goal is
for the students and families to feel welcome. I hope to provide a nurturing and engaging environment for all students
I reside in East Windsor, New Jersey with my husband, Brian, two young children Bryanna who is four and Hunter who is one and a half, and my mini-golden doodle Maggie.
