Jennifer James oversees all of our school and youth programming: our Nursery School and Day Camp, the Religious School (including CBT Chai), and our Youth Programs (Pre-Kadima, Kadima, and USY).
After many years practicing law in Philadelphia, Jennifer decided to pursue her passion and enter the field of Jewish education. Not surprisingly, she jumped-in with both feet, earning her M.A. in Jewish Education and serving as Assistant Director of Education at Adath Emanu-El in Mt. Laurel. While there, she implemented a new post-B’nai Mitzvah program; spearheaded fundraising initiatives and professional development programs; taught classes to both pre and post-B’nai Mitzvah students; and directed their Early Childhood camp. Jennifer is the proud mother of three children – Rachel (attends Rutgers, where she is a fellow with Hillel); L.J. (in High School); and Emma (in grade school).
