A 10-year anniversary deserves a night out, and the milestone marking a decade’s work of Footsteps — the New York-based nonprofit helping formerly ultra-Orthodox Jews master the tools to succeed in secular society — was no exception.
Rabbi Shira Koch Epstein, who has served for seven years as director of youth and family education at Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood, was named executive director of the 14th Street Y in Manhattan. She succeeds Steven Aranoff, who moved to Israel in August; Wendy Seligson has served as interim executive director since then.
