Barbara Haber has been a Jewish education professional for more than 20 years; she has worked as the Associate Educator at TAS for the past six years. Her teaching experience encompasses Pre-K/Kindergarten through high school, as well as adult education. 

Barbara completed her online MJEd program and earned her Master of Jewish Education degree in the spring of 2016, graduating from Hebrew College in Newton Centre, Massachusetts.

She was thrilled to have won the Grinspoon-Steinhardt Teacher of the Year Award in 2008. As a part of her award, she received training in conducting Bibliodrama, a form of midrash which allows for biblical investigation and improvisational play to better understand and relate to the many emotional layers of Torah text.
 
Barbara has two grown sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law and a delicious granddaughter, and lives with her husband, Ken, in Paramus.
 
She is responsible for the religious school, TASTE (Temple Avodat Shalom Teen Experience) and family education programming.
