Dove has been practicing and teaching yoga
for over 26 years, and believes that using as
many modalities as we can helps kids and
adults to learn. Dove began teaching yoga in
South Florida before moving up to Philly. He
began leading yoga with a Jewish bend to it
– blending parsha and yoga together – at Elat Chayyim, a retreat
center in New York.
Dove has taught at Germantown Jewish Centre in Mt. Airy for 22
years. In his 2nd grade classes he uses yoga poses both as a
learning tool for the Alef Bet and in connection to various stories.
His philosophy is that yoga – and all types of embodied practice –
engages not only the mind, but allows the whole body to remem-
ber what it is learning.

innovation, and community, the Religious School at GJC is
committed to educating a new generation of kids for our
evolving Jewish world. Our program urges students to get curious
about their Judaism and integrates cutting edge teaching
methods like Hebrew Through Movement. As they learn and
explore, students build confidence in their knowledge and
connection to our tradition, competency in prayer and ritual skills,
and a strong sense of Jewish identity and connection.
We proudly embrace the racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of
our students & their families. We welcome multiracial, interfaith,
and LGBT families, and we are committed to the inclusion of
students with special needs. The diversity of our families enriches
our community and our children’s learning. Our religious school is
geared towards students (K-10th grade) from all of GJC’s many
concentric circles of community.
