Nina Pachino came to Har Sinai in the summer of 2018 as the Director of Posner JEM and Family Programs. She has 13 years of experience in Jewish education, most recently as the Principal of Temple Solel’s Religious School (Bowie, MD). Nina’s energy, creativity and enthusiasm, as well as her ability to inspire families’ investment in Jewish life, make her a wonderful addition to our staff.
Nina grew up in Huntingdon Valley, PA outside of Philadelphia. She graduated from Penn State University and then moved to Baltimore. She was the Youth Director at Temple Emanuel and Temple Oheb Shalom. She also served as the Assistant Director of Temple Oheb Shalom’s Religious School. Nina lives in Baltimore County with her husband, Michael, a well-known simcha DJ, and her daughters Maddie and Winnie.
Nina is now working to create the new Har Sinai-Oheb Shalom Joint Religious School, alongside Aviva Janus of Oheb Shalom. The joint venture is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019 on Oheb’s campus on Park Heights Avenue.
