Amber Gitter Educator

Getting to Know the New Energetic Full-Time Educator at Adventure Judaism

Welcome to Amber Carey-Gitter, the new full-time Educator at the Adventure Judaism Congregation. Amber, an American-Israeli, moved to Boulder from Chicago to accept the position.

Amber is excited to work under the leadership of Rabbi Jamie Korngold. She believes learning should be fun and cares deeply about her students’ experiences. Her enthusiasm for Jewish learning brings an extra spark to every learning experience. In addition to teaching in Adventure Rabbi Kids (ARK), an alternative religious school, Amber tutors students in Hebrew, teaches Individual Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah students, and offers lessons in basic conversational Hebrew. She teaches students on-line, and in-person at the office or the students’ homes.

In September 2019, Amber will offer an energetic musical movement class for preschool through kindergarten-age children.

In Chicago, Amber was a Judaic instructor at Oak Park Temple, which is known as one the largest reform synagogues in the Chicagoland area. She was also children’s theatre instructor at the Theatre of Western Springs and Beyond the Stars Performing Arts Academy, and a former political science adjunct instructor at Aurora University. Amber received a BS in economics and business administration from DePaul University in Chicago, and an MA in political science & political communication from Tel-Aviv University in Israel.
