Miriam Gross has been a Jewish educator for over 12 years. She holds a bachelor's degree from Thomas Edison State College and a joint master’s degree in Jewish education from Hebrew College in Newton, MA and the Pardes Educators Program in Jerusalem. In 2009 she received her Rebbetzin ordination (married a Rabbi) and moved to Omaha, Nebraska where she was involved with fundraising, programming, teaching and outreach for the only orthodox shul in Nebraska. She is grateful to Yeshivat Maharat for giving her the opportunity to be ordained in her own right.
Miriam has experience in almost every form of Jewish education. She began her career as a youth director, and she has taught in Hebrew school, Jewish day school, and adult education. She created and directed a community Hebrew high school program for the Jewish Federation of Omaha that attracted Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and unaffiliated teens. Miriam currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland with her husband and four children: Raya, Zoey, Joseph Zvi, and Meyer.
