Welcome to our New Director of Education & Engagement!

We are thrilled to share the news that Scott Newman will become our new Director of Education and Engagement. Scott brings with him a wealth of experience, a genuine warmth, love of Jewish education and community engagement, and a deep familiarity with the MetroWest Jewish community. Scott comes to Kerem Shalom having served as the Director of Youth and Family Education for many years at Congregation Beth El in Sudbury and as an Educator at Temple Shalom in Newton. Scott will join Kerem Shalom’s professional staff on July 1, 2024, and plans are already underway for a seamless transfer of knowledge and responsibility so that he will be able to hit the ground running.  

We are so excited to welcome Scott to the Kerem Shalom staff, and we know you will join us in making him feel right at home.
