Director of Student Affairs & Assistant to the Dean
Allison joined YCT in the academic department after several years of working in development for American Friends of The Hebrew University and prior to that, the United Jewish Communities of MetroWest in Whippany, NJ. While earning a B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Maryland, Allison served as a student teacher for the Highly Gifted & Talented at Charles Drew Elementary School as well as a Religious School teacher at the Mishkan Torah Karp Family School, both schools in Maryland. Her passion for a non-judgmental Judaism, for Yiddishkeit, and education ultimately led her back to her educational roots and this inspiring institutional setting at Chovevei. Allison and her husband Aryeh live in Riverdale with their three boys, Sammy, Jonah, and Ezra.
