Ali Moss

Happy to be returning for my sixth year on the CDT Religious school staff. My passion for Jewish life and learning has motivated me to move my teaching career from the public school sector as a Spanish teacher to working in an early childhood center. I grew up outside of Philadelphia, graduated from McDaniel College in Maryland, and moved to Boston to pursue and receive my Masters in Education (MAT) at Simmons College. My strong Jewish identity was formed in the small Reconstructionist congregation in which I grew up, then cemented during the five years I spent working at Camp JRF. I love the Boston area and the community here. I also love chocolate, I am a coffee snob, enjoy watching movies and theater, and will spend time curled up in front of any Jodi Piccoult book! Looking forward to another great year in Kitah Alef.

Curriculum Overview

The Aleph Curriculum “Jewish Time” introduces students to the cycle of the Jewish year, including the weekly cycle of Shabbat, lunar based monthly calendar, and the holidays that flow through the year. The students learn the stories and themes of the holidays, as well as the holidays’ agricultural connections to the year’s seasons in the land of Israel.
