Stella Berfas

LCLJ Educator

.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Stella Berfas joined the Central community in 2019 as a full-time LCLJ educator after graduating from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a BA in sociology with a minor in history and deaf studies. Stella discovered Jewish culture over nine years as a camper and then a counselor at Camp Laurelwood, located in Madison, Connecticut. She found camp to be an enriching and spiritual Jewish experience, as was her first trip to Israel in June 2018. In her free time, Stella likes to take day trips to New York’s Hudson Valley, do the mini New York Times crossword, and find the best restaurants all over the city. Stella is a born and bred New Yorker and does not see herself living anywhere else.
