Shalom! My name is Alla Fligelman, but at The Silver Academy everyone calls me Morah Alla. I have been teaching Hebrew at The Silver Academy since 2007. I was born in Moscow, Russia, where I got my Master's degree in elementary education and Judaic studies; then I continued my education in Israel. When I was a student, I always dreamed about teaching Hebrew to children and nurturing love of Yidishkeit in their hearts. Shortly after graduation, I started to teach at the first Jewish day school in Moscow. Several years later I got married, and my husband and I traveled a lot around the world where I had the opportunity to teach Hebrew in several Jewish day schools in Europe. Finally, we settled in Harrisburg. We have three wonderful children, who all study at The Silver Academy, and I am happy to be their teacher as well.
