YOUTH DIRECTOR FOR 10 YEARS
Yoni Glatt has been Youth Director at Congregation Etz Chaim for the past 10 years. During his time here he transformed the youth program and created engaging, educational and fun activities for our children, starting from the time they can walk until they go off to college. Besides extensive Shabbat programming, Yoni always has something in the works, whether it is after school classes, fabulous Chagigot, chesed Shabbatot, Saturday night activities and more.
Yoni is also the Director of JTEEN for the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest, and just in case that isn’t enough, he runs Aryeh Adventures, a summer program which provides exciting Jewish teen tours for both mainstream and special education students. In addition, he designs Jewish themed crossword puzzles for a variety of newspapers, including The Los Angeles Times. But according to Yoni, the highlight of his week is teaching his Monday evening after-school Jewish education class to the local teens.
Yoni and his wife Lana are the proud parents of Ariella, Sofi and Dahlia. We are grateful for all the years he has been in the community with his family.
