Meet our Education Director Adva Chattler

I was born and raised in Beer-Sheva, in the south of Israel and I'm the oldest of 3 children. After high school, I spent the next 2 years serving in the Israeli Air Force in Intelligence, as a commander for much of my service. After my army service I studied Public Administration and Management and then continued for my Masters degree in Conflict Resolution and Management at Ben-Gurion University in Beer-Sheva, in which I graduated with honors. 

During my Masters I choose to write a thesis about educator’s approaches to Peace Education in Israel which was published in Hebrew. Currently, I am working on having the work of my colleague, about Arab teachers, and my work about Jewish teachers published in English, hopefully to be published worldwide. 

Since moving to the states with my husband and our dog, I have volunteered in the Wynnwood JCC and have been working there as an assistant teacher in the toddler class.  As a substitute teacher here at Beth Israel, I fell in love with the synagogue, school and the beautiful community that it holds. I am very excited to meet and work with every one and I’m very much looking forward to a great year!
