Brenda Bergstein

Brenda Sislen Bergstein became a member of Ohr Kodesh in 1980. After her marriage to Joe Bergstein (z’l) and birth of their daughters Shira and Rachel, Brenda served as president of the OK Early Childhood Center (ECC) PTA when the girls were students. She also served on the OK Board of Directors from 1990-1994, including as co-chair of the Education Committee.

In 1990, Brenda became a teacher at the OK ECC. During her twelve years at the ECC, Brenda created the first ECC library to centralize the many literary resources available to teachers, parents, and students, and initiated the Birthday Book Club to purchase books for the Children’s Collection in honor of a child’s birthday (or simcha).

Brenda has also researched and presented classes through the Pledge 30 program, on topics including Jewish centers across America, Jewish pirates, and modern Haggadot.
