MEET THE DEDICATED EDUCATORS AT OUR CENTER:   Rina with shofar-JK  

RINA DALY-GOODE

Rina Daly-Goode, our educational director, is always ready to share her joy of Judaism with the community. For more than a decade, Rina has been preparing young and old to become Bar and Bat Mitzvah. “It is such a delight to teach an individual how to read Hebrew, sing prayers and chant from the Torah,” she says with a smile.

In 1995, after graduation from CSUN with a BA in Child Development and Jewish Studies, Rina started “a new kind of Hebrew School” called the Jewish Enrichment Club. In this relaxed home-centered environment, children and parents gather every Friday afternoon to creatively explore the deep, rich traditions of our Jewish heritage.

Born in Israel, Rina brings inspiring stories from the homeland into many discussions. She especially likes to share powerful images from the realities of living in Jerusalem through times of peace and war. One of her earliest memories took place the Shabbat following the Six Day war where hundreds of people were all rushing to get to the Old City of Jerusalem. After hours of walking, everyone found themselves staring in awe at the Western Wall and Rina was asked to pray in front of it.

Already an inquisitive four-year-old, Rina refused to pray to the large blocks of stones – even with her mother’s encouragement. Week after week she just stood there in amazement, witnessing the loud praying crowd and the outpourings of their hearts.

“What makes them pray?,” she wondered. “Who are they praying to, and why are people from all over the world so drawn to this wall?”

Since then her spiritual journey has continued to unfold. Each Rabbi or scholar Rina encountered added new dimensions of beauty to her understanding of Torah and Mitzvot. When she got to know Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Rabbi Stan Levy and the B’nai Horin community, Rina knew she had finally found her spiritual family. In May of 2008 Rina received a Master Degree in Spirituality from the University of Santa Monica.
