Maggid Eitan Gutin is the newest addition to B’nai Tikvah’s professional leadership, having most recently served for six years as the Director of Lifelong Learning for Tifereth Israel Congregation in Washington, DC. He comes to us with experience in congregational schools, day schools, camps and youth groups. As a Maggid, a Jewish spiritual storyteller, Eitan uses stories and text to bring members of the Jewish community closer to each other and to the divine. He believes strongly that good Jewish Education has to nourish the heart and the spirit in addition to nourishing the intellect. Eitan met his wife, Aviva, at a USY convention right here in HaGalil; They are living in Highland Park with their son, Lev, and are thrilled to be back “home” in NJ.
