Ruth Kravit

Hi! My name is Ruth Kravit and I have been teaching at Midway Jewish Center for 10 years. I was a member of this synagogue when I was young, so it is especially nice for me to be able to give back to the synagogue that helped me become the teacher I am today.

I have been teaching at Midway for the past seven years, and I love teaching your children. Jewish education has always been a priority for me. My goal is for the children to be as excited as I am to learn and share. I also teach Russian and Spanish at Syosset High School. I have two sons, a lovely daughter-in-law and an adorable grandson.

I have been part of the Midway Family for the past 25 years and have seen many wonderful and exciting developments take place. In addition to teaching music, I have also been a Junior Congregation leader, participated in the Kadima program, and taught in the classroom. In my other life I am a Music/Art teacher in a NYC Public school. I am proud to say that the torch passes on to my daughter Gaby who is presently studying Education and is also part of the Midway Staff.
