More about Tamara:
I joined the HBHA staff in June 2008, though I’ve been a part of the HBHA family since fall 2005 when our eldest child began kindergarten. All three of our children have attended HBHA K-12: Our eldest is a recent college honors graduate, our middle child is a college junior, and our youngest is a senior at HBHA/Class of 2023. I love that HBHA provides an excellent dual curriculum education in a warm, nurturing, leadership- and Jewish values-centered environment — and it reflects those qualities as a workplace, too.

I became a Jewish professional out of my desire to create and nurture Jewish connections and communities for people of all ages. Over my career I've worked in synagogue, JCC, Jewish Federation, and day school settings. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, baking, being with my family, traveling, serving summers on Jewish education faculty at URJ Camp Kalsman, and watching sports in person and on TV.
