Mindy Davids, SJCS '90, was selected by her colleagues in the Rhea Hirsch School of Education Alumni Association to be this year’s Alumna-in-Residence. She will be in residence on the Los Angeles campus of HUC-JIR from November 9-11 teaching classes, conducting programs for students and alumni, reading Torah, delivering a D’var Torah, and meeting with students and faculty members to discuss their individual concerns.
Davids was selected by her peers in recognition of her outstanding accomplishments as a Jewish educator. She is currently the Director of Education at Temple Shaaray Tefila in New York City. Previously, she was Education Director at Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Ana, where she was also a member of the RHSOE clinical faculty.
Davids is the incoming president of the National Association of Temple Educators. She received an MAJE and MAJCS from HUC-JIR's School of Jewish Communal Service in Los Angeles.
The alumna-in-residence program is made possible by generous contributions from alumni of the Rhea Hirsch School.
