Sarah Gluck’s passion for Judaism, Hebrew, and spiritual exploration are the foundations upon which she approaches Jewish learning — inside and outside the classroom.
Sarah recently retired from her role as one of Temple Beth-El’s Education Directors, but she continues to lend her expertise to creating and teaching adult learning opportunities for our community.
Sarah has taught Hebrew for nearly four decades and has contributed to many of the Hebrew and Jewish Studies textbooks that are used by religious schools throughout North America.
A long-time member of the Association of Reform Jewish Educators, Sarah now serves on the organization’s board of trustees. She also represents the organization on the Reform Movement’s Joint Commission for Worship, Music, and Religious Living.
Sarah earned her B.A. at Oberlin College and masters’ degrees at Columbia University in Middle East Studies, Arabic, and Hebrew. She is an alumna of the One-Year Program of The Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Sarah and her husband, Rabbi Arnie Gluck, came to Temple Beth-El in 1991, after spending five years in Haifa, Israel. They are the proud parents of two daughters and grandparents of one extremely adorable granddaughter. She loves music, yoga, being out in nature, travel, and reading a good book.
Sarah is always delighted to share information about Temple Beth-El, field questions, and learn about what interests you. You can reach her via email.
