Andrea graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education in 1991. Upon graduating, she and her husband, Boaz, spent an adventurous year living and working in Johannesburg, South Africa, where Andrea was born. When they returned to Toronto, Andrea began teaching at Temple Sinai Nursery School. She took a six-year hiatus to raise her three daughters, Leore, Tamar and Tali. While she enjoyed (almost) every minute of staying home with her daughters, she was thrilled to resume teaching at Temple Sinai again in September 2000.
When her eldest daughter started her university studies in 2012, this kindled Andrea's desire to further her formal education. She decided to return to Ryerson University for graduate studies (while continuing to teach at Temple Sinai). In October 2014, Andrea proudly received a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Studies.
Welcome to Noa and Ilay our 2017-2018 ShinShinim!
Temple Sinai would like to welcome with open arms and say a heart felt b’ruchim habayim to our 2017-2018 Israeli Emissaries, Noa and Ilay.
Noa Shulman and Ilay Shimony will be putting off their military service for a year to spend their Shenat Sherut (service year) in Toronto as part of our UJA Federation’s ShinShinim program.
Selected last January by staff from Temple Sinai and our partners at Bialik Hebrew Day School, Noa and Ilay arrived in Toronto in September. They will spend time working in our school, travelling with our youth, attending our Shabbat and KIDushat Shabbat services, and engaging with the many different groups at Temple Sinai.
We wish the ShinShinim a wonderful start to their year, and we hope that all of you who are at Shabbat Services, Kidushat Shabbat, or other programs will come over and welcome Noa and Ilay.
