About Us

Elizabeth Fagin, Director of Education 

Elizabeth Fagin has been a Jewish Educator in the Seattle area for over 25 years. She has taught all ages from toddlers to adults at multiple synagogues throughout the Puget Sound area. Having grown up in western Pennsylvania, Elizabeth moved to the Seattle area in 1980. As a Jew-by-Choice, her first teaching job was in the 2nd grade for Temple B’nai Torah (where she was a member) in 1989. She continued as a teacher there for 10 years and was hired as Director of Education in 2001.

Elizabeth and her husband Michael live in Redmond WA, where they raised their two children and are currently enjoying a joint hobby of being travel writers, focusing on agricultural tourism (think wine and artisanal cheese!)

Elizabeth is thrilled to join the Kol HaNeshamah staff and is looking forward to working with  Rabbi Zari  and Sheila Abrahams to provide a quality Jewish Educational experience for our children and families.
