Uri Feinberg has been a Jewish Educator for 25 years. Born in the US, Uri immigrated to Israel when he was ten, grew up in Jerusalem served in the IDF and then, traveled the world. Uri has a Masters Degree from the Hebrew University in Contemporary Jewish Studies, and was a Jewish history teacher for North American teens, in semester programs in Israel, for many years. Uri spent three years in the US with his wife and three daughters where he served as the Interim Director of Education of Temple Israel of Boston. A licensed tour guide since 1999, Uri has worked as a tour educator for a wide range of groups including synagogue, Federation, URJ and CCAR leadership, interfaith and more. He has guided Jewish heritage trips throughout Europe and has lectured on Israel and Jewish identity across North America. In the current climate engulfing the world, Uri has re-harnessed what he does, and has taken his knowledge and his passion ‘on-line’. He continues to reach out, and partner with the North American Jewish Community. Uri and his family live in the city of Modiin, and are active members of their Reform congregation, YOZMA. Uri’s experience has been driven by a clear desire to share the power of the Land and State of Israel, to strengthen Jewish identity and a connection with the Jewish People. With his unique perspective, Uri recognizes that this process includes building bridges and having the ability to inspire and to be inspired.
