Director of Congregational Learning, Marla Kolman Antebi



Marla is an experiential educator who has over 20 years of experience working with youth, adults and families. She has taught every grade from K-12, has worked with youth groups and camps, and has directed two family schools. In 2014 she received the Diller Award for Excellence in Jewish Education. She has a B.A. in Child Development, an M.S.W. in Community Organizing, is trained in Spiritual Direction and received smicha (ordination) as a Teacher of Jewish Meditation and Mysticism. In addition to her role at TBT, she leads a monthly Jewish Meditation group, works with independent families preparing for B’nei Mitzvah, and teaches Mysticism and Mussar (ask her what that is!) to adults. She has a special passion for interfaith work and has attended and presented work at several Parliaments of the World’s Religions. Her relationship with Israel dates back to 1980, and she has traveled there many times over the years to work, study, travel, and lead groups. She is a games enthusiast (Scrabble, anyone?), a glass mosaic artist, and mom to two boys. She is very excited to join the TBT team and to expand the array of educational and experiential offerings for our children, adults, and families.
