Mike Mason joined our congregation as Director of Lifelong Learning in January 2019. He comes to HCRJ with nearly 15 years of experience in Jewish education. He has an MSW from the University of Southern California and a M.A. in Jewish Communal Service from Hebrew Union College. For the past 8 years, Mike was the Director of Youth Education at Congregation Beth Am in Lost Altos Hills, California (a large, cutting-edge Reform congregation in the heart of Silicon Valley). Mike is an extraordinary educator, a multi-talented musician, a prolific podcaster and a super-fun soul to be around.
We are so blessed to have Mike as the newest member of the HCRJ professional staff, and he is looking forward to getting to know everyone in our congregational family. Mike is married to Rabbi Erin Ellis Mason, Director at URJ Greene Family Camp. They have 3 children – Zachary, Eliza and Aviva.
