Julia Laibstain joined Central Synagogue as a full-time educator in 2019. Julia works with a variety of LCLJ students and coordinates our LCLJ Shabbat Program. After graduating from Indiana University in 2017 with a BS in non-profit management and a certificate in Jewish Studies, Julia moved to Jerusalem for two years. There, she spent time working with gap-year students, studying Torah, and developing her Jewish education skills. Julia’s passion for Jewish education began during her summers at Capital Camps in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, and continued through her time in BBYO, High School in Israel, and Hillel and Jewish National Fund involvements in college. Outside of work, Julia loves to run by the water in Riverside Park, dive deep into a watercolor painting, and FaceTime her family back in Norfolk, Virginia.
