Rabbi Kerrith Solomon, Director of Education

Rabbi Kerrith Solomon, Director of Education, joined Adas Israel as Director of Education in the summer of 2014, overseeing and directing all aspects of congregational education for members age 0-18, and their families. She has a rich and varied background in education and Jewish learning and her educational practice and philosophy is based on her experiences working in synagogues, day schools, camps, campus, Federation and Israel. She previously served as Senior Jewish Educator at Tufts University Hillel and Director of Teen Programming and Family Life Educator at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun in New York and has worked in a variety of other formal and informal settings. Kerrith completed the Hartman-Hillel iEngage Fellowship for Campus leaders and is currently a participant in the second Senior Educators Cohort of M²: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education. She enjoys sharing her learning with the Adas community.



Pamela Gorin, Assistant Director of Education

Pamela Gorin has extensive experience in Jewish education, first as a teacher in both religious and early childhood education and then as an early childhood director. Passionately engaged in the Jewish education of children, she is also equally passionate about strengthening the skills of teachers and has presented workshops both nationally and locally—at the National Association for the Education of Young Children and at the early childhood conference through the Department of Jewish Life and Learning. She loves that her position at Adas allows her the opportunity to work with students, parents and teachers as well as the time to deeply engage in planning professional development and curriculum.



Sarah Atermann, Youth and Family Coordinator

Before joining the Adas Israel Education team, Sarah worked as the Program Director at Camp Ramah Darom. She holds degrees in Elementary Education and Jewish Education and has been an educator and dedicated participant in a variety of Jewish communal settings. Sarah loves the opportunity to interact and work with students from all ages and plan meaningful programs for them here at Adas. Her passion for Jewish education stems from her involvement in Jewish youth groups and many summers at Jewish summer camp.




Kristine Hyland, Education Office Manager

Before coming to Adas, Kristine worked in both banking and real estate in the DMV area. She has a passion for Jewish learning, education, and civil rights advocacy. What Kristine loves most about working at Adas is inspiring youth and families around her to engage in Adas’ rich learning environment.
