Head of Middle School
Ms. Jennifer Bernstein (Head of Middle School). Bio coming soon.
Director of Curriculum and Faculty Supervision
Rabbi M. Mendel Lewitin, M.Ed. (Director of Curriculum and Faculty Supervision) received Rabbinic Ordination and a Doctorate in Jewish Jurisprudence and holds a Masters in Educational Administration. He has been an administrator of general studies at Jewish day schools for close to three decades. Before joining Ramaz, he was Head of School at the Striar Hebrew Academy of Sharon, MA. He helped lead the growth of the school and the goal was realized with the graduation of its first Grade Six class in 2004.
Rabbi Lewitin was raised in New York City, and soon after he was married, he and his wife moved to the South to bring Jewish education into the small towns.
Early in his career, Rabbi Lewitin applied to NASA for the Teacher in Space Program and was accepted on the National and State levels. Fortuitously, he did not advance in the process to ride the ill-fated Challenger.
He is an avid collector of classic Judaic texts and enjoys hiking and biking through National Parks.
