Micah Friedman

Kitah Hay (Fifth Grade) Lead Teacher

Micah feels blessed to have the opportunity to teach Kitah Hay on Sundays this year! He is a rabbinical student at Hebrew College where he enjoys spending many hours swimming in the sea of Torah and hopes to invite his class into these thrilling waters through engaging with the Book of Exodus this year. Originally from Tampa, FL, Micah enjoys spending as much time as possible outside surrounded by greenery.

With co-teacher Liz Krushnic! Liz (she/her/hers) is delighted to spend another year hanging out with the incredible students of Kita Hay. Prior to her time at CDT, Liz worked for three years as the Youth & Community Organizer at Boston Workers Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice, where she ran the Teens Acting for Social Change program. In addition to working at CDT, Liz is studying in the Clinical Herbalist Program at the Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism. In her spare time, she loves baking birthday cakes, and keeping tabs on her various plant friends in Jamaica Plain. A Newton native, Liz is delighted to be working in the community where she grew up.

Curriculum Overview

Shmot: The Exodus story: Continuing to build on their Torah reading skills of havruta learning, Torah and midrash reading, this class studies the second book of the Torah, focusing on the Israelites’ experience of slavery in Egypt and the process of their redemption. The students connect their study to modern day slavery, engaging in tikkun olam projects around current labor issues such as organizing a fair trade chocolate sale and learning about the Immokalee workers’ fight for fair wages.
