Jeannine Cotler wants to take the religious school of Temple Beth Orr in a new direction.
The new principal of the Rosenberg religious school changes the model for both teachers and students by immerse yourself in the experiences of what it means to be Jewish using a multisensory approach.
This includes learning to read, understand and appreciate Hebrew in a new and meaningful way.
President Steven Marcus said they were particularly excited about the paradigm shift in their approach to religious school.
“As Jews, we believe that we never stop learning. This is evident at Temple Beth Orr, where we take lifelong learning to heart with our many varied programs and courses offered throughout the year.

She received her BA in Elementary Education from Nova Southeastern University and spent many years teaching in private and public schools including the Kuhn Early Childhood Center in Temple Beth Orr and Rosenberg Religious School.
Her four children grew up in Temple Beth Orr and are the products of their many educational avenues.
“I am here now, as a director, because of my love for the Beth Orr Temple and my passion and enthusiasm for Jewish education,” Cotler said.
