Yael has a teachers’ diploma from Beis Yaakov Seminary Montreal, a B.A. in Judaic Studies from McGill University, and has studied in the Masters program in Jewish Education at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Mrs. Leah Levitt
Growing up in a Chabad environment, Leah became connected to Chassidut early on. After advancing her Chassidic studies at Machon Shoshanat Yerushalayim serving on shlichut in Arizona, Leah went on to broaden her Torah education at Stern College in the Masters program in Jewish History as well. Leah is passionate about delving into the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and sharing that love and pathway with her students.
Mrs. Chaya Ester Ort
