Ann Zivitz Kientz

Ann is a 3rd generation Temple Sinai member and has had the honor of serving as President 2007-2009 as well as chairing many committees and teaching in the Religious school! She was a camper for many years at Henry S. Jacobs Camp and that coupled with her NFTY Southern experiences started her on a lifelong journey of learning and joy in Reform Judaism.  She is committed to making sure that our kids have every opportunity to attend Religious and Hebrew school, Jacobs camp, be involved in Youth Group and celebrate Judaism in as many ways as possible.

Ann is delighted to be able to share her enthusiasm and knowledge with the next generation at Temple Sinai! She is driven to make sure that our kids have the very best education in the Religious and Hebrew Schools and to connect our next generation carefully and thoughtfully to God, Judaism, Temple Sinai, the Jewish Community and the New Orleans Community.

She also teaches several adult education classes throughout the year for parents wanting to catch up with their kids as well as adults converting to Judaism and for our Jewish adults who enjoy the life long study of Judaism.


Our Religious/Hebrew School Staff

With our close proximity to Tulane, we are blessed to have many gifted Jewish teachers and role models from all across the US! They make up the majority of our staff and also serve as our Private tutors for Hebrew school. We also have teachers who have been teaching in our school for many years who are members of our congregation and between them all; we have the best staff any Educator could possibly ask for!
