...
Being the child of Holocaust survivors, Miriam knew that living as a Jew was a gift, andthat it was a responsibility to be an active part of the Jewish community. t age 13, Miriam's family joined Temple Beth Tikvah, and Miriam found her niche by joining the junior choir and getting involved in the junior youth group. Miriam's parents also became active Temple members and served as strong role models for Miriam and her sister by serving on the Temple boardin a variety of positions over the ensuing years. In junior high school Miriam helped to lead the juniorcongregation that met during Religious School. In high school she became a teacher's aide. Theneducator Sam Silverstein (z'l) offered Miriam the job of Religious School secretary, which gave Miriam thehands-on training on how to manage the school. iriam began teaching Hebrew & Religious School while still in high school, and branched out to teach a variety of grade levels in various Orange County synagogues to gain experience with different agegroups. Favoring the techniques of teaching young children, her greatest challenge came when sheaccepted the invitation to teach Confirmation in 1995. One of the students from that year's class is nowon the teaching staff of our Temple, and several others throughout the years have gone on to becomecommunity leaders and educators. n 1975 Miriam was awarded a double Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Fullertonin Religious Studies and Sociology.

Miriam Van Raalte's journey towards her career as educator and Temple administrator began when her family moved to California in 1959. She always loved her Jewish studies, which were part of her family's rich Jewish life. Being the child of Holocaust survivors, Miriam knew that living as a Jew was a gift, and that it was a responsibility to be an active part of the Jewish community.
At age 13, Miriam's family joined Temple Beth Tikvah, and Miriam found her niche by joining the junior choir and getting involved in the junior youth group. Miriam's parents also became active Temple members and served as strong role models for Miriam and her sister by serving on the Temple board in a variety of positions over the ensuing years.
