Mira Lyonblum (she/her)

Director of Education

I am thrilled to be the Director of Education, working together with the wonderful families at Habonim Congregation! Together we will learn about how our rich traditions lend themselves to the values of today, how our prayers and celebrations are relevant to our lives, and how Tikkun Olam (repairing our world) is a crucial way to make our community a place that we are all proud to be part of.

I have been involved in program development, specifically social justice education, in many roles and organizations. As a camp lifer, I grew up at URJ Camp George and Kutz Camp, and have been the Director of MARVEL, Take Action Camp, and several other camp programs which all focus on leadership and social action. I am currently the coordinator of the B’nei Mitzvah program with the Danforth Jewish Circle and a Board member of the Red Door Family Shelter, as well as a Hebrew and general studies tutor. I’ve studied Peace and Conflict Studies and International Development, along with a smattering of other fun pursuits – I love learning! I worked most recently for Action Against Hunger Canada as National Program Director, creating and facilitating food justice and gardening programming.

I have loved traveling around the world, immersing in incredible culture and meeting beautiful people, and now I love to share those memories and photos with my kids Sadie, Arlo, and Ezra. I’m a fan of swimming, finding new-to-me movies to watch, amateur crafts, Harry Potter, and anything tie-dye.

This community is only as strong as its members, and I hope very much that we can work together to make this a place where Judaism comes alive! I would love to hear from you about your ideas or questions about the school – please e-mail me anytime at habonimschool@gmail.com
