LilyFish Gomberg


LilyFish Gomberg (she/they) is thrilled to be teaching Kitah Daled this year! Morah LilyFish has been a part of Dorshei Tzedek's religious school since she was in in Kindergarden, although she has only been teaching since she was in high school. This is Morah LilyFish's second year as a lead teacher. When not at religious school, LilyFish is a senior at Brandeis University studying Near Eastern & Judaic Studies with minors in Sexuality & Queer Studies and History. She is involved in the Reconstructionist group on campus, as well as her Jewish sisterhood and Hillel. In her free time, LilyFish likes to paint, study Talmud, and hang out with friends. One day, LilyFish hopes to go to rabbinical school at RRC.

With co-teacher Gavi Troper-Hochstein

Gavi Troper-Hochstein (she/her) is excited to return to CDT Religious school for her first full year as an assistant teacher. She is from Portland, Oregon, and is so happy to have found a compassionate, social justice oriented congregation here in Massachusetts that reminds her of the community she grew up in. Gavi is a sophomore at Brandeis University, and would like to teach full time after college. She is a research assistant for a project studying online Jewish education during the pandemic. In her free time, she enjoys exploring new hiking trails and learning about textile arts.

 

Curriculum Overview

Bereishit continued / Jewish Family Tree: Picking up roughly where the class left off in Kita Gimel, this class continues studying the book of Genesis, beginning with the story of Abraham and Sarah, and follows the stories of their children and grandchildren. The class explores the variety of characters in the family tree and their diverse experiences of God. Learning midrash deepens the students’ experience of Jewish narrative process and the students engage in creative projects through drama, art or writing.
