Meet Klielle - Kadima Advisor!

Hello Temple Reyim community! My name is Klielle Glanzberg-Krainin, I’m a sophomore at Tufts University from Philadelphia, PA, and I’m so excited to be your new Kadima Advisor. As a previous Kadimanick myself, I think the program is really great and I’m so happy that I get to be a part of it again. I’m looking forward to putting my years at Jewish day school to use in planning awesome events that have Jewish components as well. I’ve worked at Camp Ramah in the Poconos for a few years now and love working with kids, so I’m excited to have this opportunity to continue doing what I love.

Thank you for already making me feel so welcome in your warm community—it’s so nice to find a synagogue that reminds me of home. Looking forward to a great year with you all!
