As Educational Director, Rabbi Nogah Marshall oversees curriculum, staff supervision, and instruction of our Early Childhood Center. Rabbi Marshall has focused her work on children, families, and special needs individuals. She specializes in creative curriculum development, family & adult education, and building a passionate, inclusive, nurturing Jewish community. Her educational philosophy centers on experiential education coupled with religious observance, “One of my goals is to create a love of Judaism in my students so that they want to learn and incorporate it in their daily lives. This can be done by creating a solid foundation and a strong sense of community. It’s not just about education, but about community.” 

Rabbi Marshall received her Bachelor of Arts cum laude in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies from Brandeis University, a Master’s Degree in Education from Harvard University, and was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary and earned a Master of Hebrew Letters. While attending Brandeis University, Rabbi Marshall was a member of the swim team, violinist in the Orchestra, as well as a member of the traveling Israeli dance troupe, B’yachad. She loves to travel and has a strong passion and love for the State of Israel. And one of her hidden talents is juggling!

Rabbi Marshall, her husband Scott and their children Karni, Eyden, Austin and Jaclyn are thrilled to be a part of the Beth El family.

Ayelet Mittelman

ECC Principal

Ayelet was lucky enough to spend her childhood moving around Israel and California before settling in Long Island, NY. She graduated from  Pratt Institute where she dabbled in as many art mediums as she could fit into a semester!  Ayelet comes to the ECC with more than 20 years of management, administrative and healthcare experience.  Ayelet and her husband, Matt, are proud parents of ECC graduate, Maya, and their newest addition Sadie is one of the happy students in our Infant Room.  

Ayelet has always had a love of her Jewish and Israeli roots.  When you stop by to visit you will find Hamsas adorning her walls, as a constant reminder of her family in Israel.  Being first brought into the ECC as a parent, Ayelet had a unique perspective on then joining as a staff member.  The ECC is her second home, and the teachers, Clergy and staff are her second family. Being the principal of the ECC is a labor of love.  You will not find a bigger cheerleader for the ECC!!  Ayelet loves to paint and build things with her daughters, and to play dress up and go on adventures with them.  When Ayelet has a few moments to herself, she can be found reading a good book, painting, making jewelry, or watching 80's movies. Ayelet also really loves Nutella.

Ayelet loves visitors, and as a typical Jewish mommy, will likely offer you some food.  Come on by and say hello!
