Nancy Green

I have worked at Kol Rinah and for Shaare Zedek for 11-1/2 years.   I have been married for 44 years and have 3 children and 8 grandchildren.  My corporate life experiences before Kol Rinah include over 30 years in the banking, insurance, accounting and law industries.  The experience I have gained at
Kol Rinah has been the most rewarding because of the staff and the congregants who are the lifeblood of this organization.

Toby Loewenstein

Toby is excited to be working as the Young Families Program Coordinator and Youth Advisor at Kol Rinah! She is originally from Northern Virginia and moved to St. Louis in 2013 to do Teach For America. She immediately became involved in the young adult Jewish community and became a Next Dor fellow and then board member. The St. Louis Jewish community became a large reason for her desire to stay in St. Louis beyond her two year commitment for Teach For America. She taught in a preschool special education inclusion classroom for three years and kindergarten classroom for two years while getting her Masters in Elementary Education and Certification in Early Childhood Education at UMSL. Now she is taking some classes online for Speech Language Pathology while working part time at Kol Rinah. She is excited to get to know the community!
