Sue Penfil, Teacher

Sue is excited to begin her third year teaching at Or Chadash.  She has always been most at home serving the Jewish community.  While raising her daughters, Rachael & Alli in the suburbs of Philly, she served her congregation as a long-standing member of the Religious School committee, the Board of Directors, and the congregation’s Office and Facilities Manager.  As her girls approached their Bat Mitzvah years, Sue decided to learn how to read Torah and Haftarah and found her true passion and third career as a Hebrew School teacher and Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutor. She has been a Jewish Educator for over a dozen years, teaching grades 4-10. In her free time she enjoys hanging out with family and friends, shopping, and playing mahjong.  Her proudest accomplishment is having raised two amazing girls Rachael, 26, an archeologist and Alli, 23, who made aliyah last summer to serve in the IDF.
