Rivy Kletenik

Rivy Poupko Kletenik, a Covenant Award winner, is in her twelfth year as Head of School of the Seattle Hebrew Academy. Rivy has taught several long-standing weekly classes for the community, including a women’s Talmud class now in its 24th year. Her column “What’s Your JQ” appeared in the JT News and now runs in the new Jewish in Seattle magazine. Rivy’s other articles have been featured in the JOFA Journal, Lilith, New York Jewish Week, and Tablet. She has enjoyed traveling as a scholar-in-residence, as a teacher in the Mussar Institute’s Kallahs, and as a Limmud presenter in the UK, the Bay Area, New York, and Winnipeg, so she is thrilled to finally be part of Limmud Seattle! The past few summers Rivy has found herself in Europe on a search for family roots. Her articles, “Following in My Father's Footsteps” and “Opening Chapters,” unpack the emotional nature of these experiences. On a personal level, Rivy is married to Rabbi Moshe Kletenik and is the proud mother of four children and seven very impressive grandchildren.
