BSTY (Beth Shalom Temple Youth)

Youth Group Advisor: Ellen Zieselman

As our BSTY (Beth Shalom Temple Youth) advisor since 1990, one of our B’nai Mitzvah tutors since 1997, and a long-time teacher in our religious school, Ellen can be found at TBS more often than not. Her TBS career began in the fall of 1990 when the 5th grade teacher quit after 2 classes. It went so well that she graduated with her kids to 6th grade and then to 7th, the grade she has been teaching ever since. Ellen travels about 5 times a year with her class to NFTY-SW events all over our large and diverse region. In June of 2008, Ellen was named the URJ RJ Youth Worker of the Month. She takes pride in the fact that BSTY has a reputation as the least cliquey, nicest, most welcoming youth group in the region.

Ellen came to Santa Fe in June of 1989 and has recently retired (in 2014) from a successful career as Curator of Education at the New Mexico Museum of Art. She was born in New York City, grew up in New Rochelle, has an AB (with honors) in Art History from Brown University and a Masters from Williams College. Although she is retired from the New Mexico Museum, we are happy to say that she has not retired from TBS, continuing to give us much of her time.
