We are thrilled to welcome Sharon Acierno as our new Religious School Education Director! Morah Sharon will supervise the school curriculum bringing experiential methods and hands-on activities to our classrooms.
Her vast experience as a lifelong teacher in supplemental Hebrew schools, working at Yeshivas, as a literacy coach, educating staff, and as principal at Temple Hatikvah in Flanders, NJ, have helped her establish a broad educator’s toolbox to enhance the already-established curriculum at TBEMC.
Morah Sharon stresses project-based learning methods and strongly believes in immersing students in Judaism to create a fun and memorable learning environment. We are excited that Rabbi Kerbel and Morah Sharon are working hand in hand to institute many new family programs including the pre Rosh Hashana Fair, Sukkot Shindig, Journey to Matzoh Baking, and much more. They also hope to create special workshops for our pre B’nai Mitzvah students.
She is delighted to join the TBEMC family, and we can’t wait for the students to meet her! You can also meet Morah Sharon & our Religious School Teachers in person on August 17 at our Religious School Open House from 5-7 pm. Bring a friend and come on by to see all that we have to offer. We can’t wait to reconnect!

Get to know our awesome Education Director,
Drop your kids off at Religious School or come for the 9:00 am service, run errands, then join us for Cantor Frank’s famous coffee and an opportunity to meet other parents and discuss Jewish “mindfulness” practices in relation to parenting.
We will study “Mussar”—Jewish values and concepts to enhance our parenting practices and our relationships with our children.
Examples of the character traits we will discuss: Patience, humility, respect, order, trust, equanimity, lovingkindness. A different trait every week, so don’t worry if you have to miss a week.
No Jewish educational background is assumed. All are welcome. There is no charge.
Join us for the Religious School movie night at TBEMC! We will watch this hilarious movie, which deals with many issues related to the process of becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Popcorn and snacks. All ages are welcome.
