As we mentioned last week, Joel recently won the prestigious 1998 Covenant Award, which recognizes the finest Jewish teachers in North America for their contributions to Jewish education. We also want to recognize the two other Covenant Award winners. Rabbi Elana Kanter was ordained by JTS in 1989 and since then has been involved in Jewish day schools as a teacher and an administrator in New York, Atlanta, Providence and Birmingham. She currently serves as the Associate Rabbi for Education at Temple Beth-El in Birmingham. Anne Lidsky just completed her 18th year as Director of Education at Temple Jeremiah in Northfield, IL. Anne is a licensed clinical psychologist and for the past 15 years has been a therapist and support group leader for the Les Turner ALS foundation. Congratulations to both Elana and Ann!
