Getting to Know...

Mindy B. Davids, RJE
Director of Religious School and Educational Innovation

Mindy can hardly believe that she has been an educator at Shaaray Tefila and living in New York for the past nine years.  Moving in 2006 from sunny Southern California, she has come to enjoy Broadway Theater, sampling fine dining restaurants around town, and taking long walks on those rare perfect spring afternoons.
