What do you love about working for Talmud Torah?

I enjoy working with both students and adults and to see the great impact of growing Jewish leaders that will continue to work in the community. Talmud Torah was my first place of employment after coming to Minneapolis with my wife and three children in 1984. I have enjoyed the close friendships that I have developed through the years with staff, Talmud Torah families, and students.
