Religious School

Shalom from our Religious School Family!

FVJC’s Religious School is led by a fantastic team of professionals well known to our school and synagogue communities.

A Southern California native, RABBI GAVI RUIT was ordained by Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles and engaged in post ordination graduate studies in Medieval and Modern Jewish Thought. Rabbi Ruit has a master’s in clinical psychology with a specialization in child development. Her unique background is the perfect fit for her role as Director of Lifelong Learning at FVJC Emek Shalom where she leads our Religious School and Adult Education programs. Her approach to the rabbinate is both scholarly and deeply spiritual.

Rabbi Gavi works with Rabbi Bekah, and support from the Education Committee, to implement our outstanding curriculum building your child’s Jewish identity and knowledge in a warm, embracing community.
