Tanya Farber, with more than a decade of teaching experience, continues to evolve as an educator and to refine her skills in crafting meaningful student-directed lessons. For her first seven years in the classroom, she taught Tanach in yeshiva high schools in NY and NJ. More recently, Tanya served as the Jewish Studies Coordinator and as a beit midrash instructor at the former Pre-Collegiate Learning Center, a blended-learning high school alternative. Currently, Tanya creates and teaches experiential Jewish curricula and is designing a beit midrash program for the 4th -6th grades at the Nefesh Yehudi Academy, NJ. Tanya is also developing a prayer curriculum, geared towards teens and kids, that integrates mindfulness meditation with Tefillah and liturgy. On weekends, Tanya works as a supervisor in a shomer Shabbat group home for Jewish women with developmental disabilities.
Originally from Arizona, Tanya has studied Torah in a variety of Jewish settings: at teachers' seminaries for Bais Yaakov graduates in both Israel and the US, batei midrash in New York City (Drisha, Yeshivat Hadar), non-denominational programs (Institute of Jewish Spirituality, Elat Chayyim), and with beloved havrutot every step of the way.
