Rabbi Ricki Lobel

Rabbi Ricki Lobel has delighted in spending her entire adult life as a teacher and student with co-learners of all ages. She recently retired as a special education teacher, having worked in all grades from kindergarten through adult.


In the Jewish community, she has taught in local religious schools, served as the Education Director for two congregational schools, and as a Co-Director of a community Jewish high school. She has worked with both teens and adults as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah instructor.

With Junior Congregation at one end and adult Torah Study and educational programming at the other, her experience with learners from ages 4 to 94 has inspired her to continue her own Jewish education through study at Brandeis University, American Jewish University, the Whizin Center for Continuing Education, Rutgers University, and the Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute.


Her association with Melton assures that she will continue to study in order to bring ever more to her students.
