List Maker, Hosting Ninja, Educational Gadfly

When she isn’t building learning communities with IYUN, Melissa Werbow serves as the Education Director at the Hill Havurah in Washington DC.  She is passionate about creating authentic communities and empowering learners to take ownership of their Jewish tradition. She has spent her career straddling the worlds of congregational, adult and day school education – three arenas that don’t talk to each other nearly enough. She and Rabbi Mike Werbow are the parents of three mostly delightful children and one very spoiled dog. Melissa is currently obsessing about gluten-free vegetarian cooking, parenting teenagers and what novel she should read next.
