Adam Baranker

Youth Engagement Coordinator

Adam Baranker started his Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel journey in 2013 as the teacher/facilitator of the 8th Grade Hebrew High program.  He is now the Youth Engagement Coordinator overseeing much of our 3rd-12th grade youth programming including teaching/facilitating our 8th Grade Hebrew High program, overseeing our junior youth groups, the 9th-12th Hebrew High program and our field trips. Adam's mission is to make sure all of our kids/teens want to continue through TSTI with age-approrpiate programing because he personally understands the value of continuous commitment to one's Jewish identity and community through and beyond Bar/Bat mitzvah age. Outside of TSTI, Adam is the full-time Assistant Director at Jeff Lake Camp. He brings his camp spirit and high energy to TSTI, modeling for our teens what it means to be committed to the Jewish community.  Adam lives in Livingston with his fiance Jill.
