Danny Farkas Selected as Principal and Lead Educator
The TV/TC Board is pleased to announce that Danny Farkas has been selected as Principal and Lead Educator for the TV/TC Midrasha Program. Many in the TV/TC community already know Danny, as he has taught in our program for the past three years. In the coming year, Danny will assume additional responsibilities as the Principal of TV/TC Midrasha while continuing to have a teaching role in the program.
Danny is an experienced Jewish educator, having taught at both the Berkeley and Oakland Midrasha campuses in addition to teaching for the TV/TC program. He has also served as a member of the Midrasha retreat staff, as a youth director facilitating three chapters of USY (United Synagogue Youth), and as Education Director of Congregation Shir Ami in Castro Valley.
Danny holds a Bachelor of Arts in Jewish Studies from The American Jewish University, with an emphasis on language, communication and media. He was the recipient of an Education Scholarship for Excellence in 2010. Danny completed the Kevah Teaching Fellowship in 2012-13 and recently completed the Torah Trek Guide Fellowship 2014-15.
Danny’s formal education, combined with his teaching experience, his passion for teen experiential education, and his familiarity with the TV/TC Midrasha program, have equipped him well for his TV/TC leadership role in the year ahead.
