Tzipporah Boim Named as Moriah Middle School Associate Principal

EnglewoodMrs. Tzipporah Boim will join The Moriah School this summer as the new Associate Principal for the Middle School.

Mrs. Boim has been a faculty member at Ramaz for over 23 years.

“She is a master pedagogue who has developed a strong reputation for achieving
educational excellence in the classroom,” Head of School Rabbi Daniel Alter told The Jewish Link. “She joins a leadership team that is incredibly talented and skilled and I look forward to working with her and my administrative team to continue to ensure that Moriah is one of the premier Jewish Day Schools in this country,” he said.

Mrs. Boim has extensive mentoring experience, and considers teacher mentoring one of her passions. She is also heavily involved in structural support and has worked throughout her career to develop strong administrative support systems. Mrs. Boim also has a background in experiential education, having served for many years as a Head Counselor at Camp Mesorah.

“I believe strongly in a team approach. Both at Ramaz and at Camp Mesorah, I work closely with others and am eager to move forward in a collaborative approach at Moriah as well. I look forward to working with the Moriah administrators and the talented Middle School faculty to continue developing a program based on best practices in education that is child centered and can both challenge and support every student every day,” Mrs. Boim told The Jewish Link.

Mrs. Boim added that she believes the social and emotional growth of each child is vital to healthy learning. “A team approach is not only about faculty. A partnership between families and school gives every student the best chance for success. Over my many years at Ramaz and at Camp Mesorah, I have found that forging warm, healthy relationships with families helps breed success for the children, who are at the center of these relationships. I am eager to share my warmth and positive attitude with the Moriah families,” she said.

Mrs. Boim’s selection culminates an extensive search that began this past summer. A Moriah statement to parents shared that their search committee designed the ideal profile for their new Middle School Associate Principal, and then used the profile to create a job description and an assessment process to score every candidate. The school received over 70 applicants for the position.

“While we interviewed many great candidates, Mrs. Boim was so strong in so many of the areas that were important to us, that it became quite apparent that she was a perfect fit for this position,” Rabbi Alter told The Jewish Link.

The committee was chaired by Jay Goldberg and Alex Solomon. Committee members included Dr. Michal Fox, Noam Ohring and Alana Green.

On behalf of the search committee, Goldberg shared his impressions. “Tzipporah is a high energy professional with clear presence and purpose, a stellar educator with solid management experience and she has earned the deepest respect and admiration of her peers.

“Our nationwide search for leading candidates led us to Tzipporah, whose natural leadership quality will serve to drive Moriah’s Middle School program, culture and overall communal spirit collaboratively and measurably forward,” he told The Jewish Link.

Mrs. Boim will continue to work with Moriah’s Middle School administrative team, consisting of Mrs. Barbara Rotenberg, Middle School Coordinator; Mrs. Alana Green, Director of Student Support; Mrs. Yardena Brickman, Middle School Guidance Counselor; Rabbi Eitan Lipstein, Director of Student Activities and Rabbi Yoni Fein, who has been promoted to Assistant Principal of Middle School Judaics and Student Life. The school plans to host meetings for our parent body to meet Mrs. Boim in the near term.

Mrs. Boim lives in Jamaica Estates, Queens, with her husband, Moshe. They have four children.
