Education Director Faryn Borella

Faryn Borella is a Jewish educator, ritual leader, chaplain and rabbinical student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. As an educator, Faryn has had the great privilege of working in a variety of unique settings, from farms to Redwood forests to skilled nursing facilities to graduate schools. 

About Jewish education, Faryn says:

What I love most about Judaism and Jewish education is the way in which Judaism has always been a living, embodied tradition, a tradition of discourse and disagreement, and a tradition of radical pedagogy. In Jewish education, we have the opportunity to educate students differently. We have the opportunity for students to learn by doing, making, praying, playing, arguing, disagreeing. And we know the outcome of all of it--the doing, the making, the praying, the playing, the arguing, the disagreeing--that too is Torah.
