NORA ISACOFF is excited to join the Limmud staff, where she can combine two of her greatest passions: teaching and CBST! Nora has a PhD in cognitive psychology focusing on language development, and she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in literacy education. At CBST, Nora serves as Vice Chair of Aleinu (the 20s/30s group) and sings in the chorus. Outside of CBST, she has her own practice working with children who have special learning needs, and she holds the title of research scientist at NYU, where she consults on education policy. Nora spends as much of her free time as possible playing with her dog, Sophie, in Prospect Park.

​REBECCA TEMKIN is a recent graduate of Barnard College and is interested in French, francophone studies, and human rights. She enjoys music, rock climbing and traveling and has spent abroad, especially in both France and Israel. She is a second generation member of CBST.  She was one of the first babies named at our synagogue and has enjoyed being a part of the CBST community her whole life.

She has a certificate in Fundraising (NYU) and degrees in Educational Technology (MS/LIU) and Marine Biology (BS/Cornell).
