Justin is an entrepreneurial, Agile Jewish creative. A trained educator, he worked in nearly every avenue of Jewish communal life: schools, camps, synagogues, Federation and as the creator of MagneticShul. He developed MagneticShul to meet the needs of youth attending synagogues so they could engage through play while being unable to access the environment. By day, Justin works in Agile Transformation as a Scrum Master, where he helps teams improve communication to work more effectively to get the job done. Justin maintains a strong commitment to Jewish learning by teaching Melton classes and being involved with Limmud North America.
Justin first got involved with Bayit through developing the layouts for Bayit publications. This experience has furthered his creative pursuits to (re)think how we live lives fueled by Jewish learning. Much of Justin’s thinking involve how our environments and experiences are meeting the needs of attendees and what the effects will be of the future. His passion ignites when others own their future and their approach to living based on the diversity of Jewish learnings. If you ever are looking for a thought partner as a hevruta and looking to simply explore ideas and ensure that there is a process to reach a goal, give Justin a call to talk it through.
After seeing the inside of six DMVs, Justin resides in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife-Rachel and their three ever growing children. In many ways, they are his inspiration to be agile and forward thinking.
