Marlene Myerson to Become Independent Education Consultant

Marlene Myerson, who has been active in Jewish education for more than 36 years, will be leaving Behrman House to become an independent curriculum consultant.

“I will be doing what I love most - consulting with educators and training teachers on all matters pertaining to Jewish education and curriculum,” Marlene says. “I am grateful that I will continue to be associated with Behrman House, although in a less formal way.”

Marlene joined Behrman House as a curriculum consultant and education specialist in 2015, serving congregations throughout North America, as well as Europe, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. 

Previously, she served as Director of Education at Temple Emanu-El in Toronto, as well as the URJ Regional Educator for Canada and as Education Specialist and Curriculum Consultant for the URJ. Marlene is also one of the authors of the CHAI Curriculum.  She is a past president of the Association of Reform Jewish Educators (ARJE) and currently chairs the ARJE Accreditation Committee.

“Marlene’s extensive background in Jewish education, her ongoing work in accreditation with ARJE, and her deep knowledge of key materials such as the CHAI curriculum and Mitkadem will make her a valuable resource for educators seeking help in establishing meaningful goals and creating the learning environment that is perfect for their specific community,” says Vicki Weber, partner at Behrman House.

Marlene’s new email is:

We will miss her as a Behrman House colleague, and wish her much success on her new venture!
