In July 2015, United Hebrew welcomed Lauren Lourie to the staff of United Hebrew Congregation. Lauren comes to UH with a strong background in education, wonderful teaching experience and a commitment to Judaism from her involvement in informal and formal Jewish educational programs. She also brings her incredible enthusiasm and warm personality to our congregation. Since moving to St. Louis in 2013, Lauren has taught kindergarten and third grade at Hanna Woods Elementary School in the Parkway School District, following her three years of teaching at the Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School in Chicago and four years in the Houston Independent School District. She is a team leader and has a broad range of experience leading many aspects of school programming, from designing and implementing curriculum in the gifted and talented program to coordinating after-school tutorial programs.

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Lauren graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and student-taught at the early childhood and elementary levels. Lauren’s husband, Jason, originally from St. Louis, moved the family back home to raise their own family among other family and friends. The couple have two sons, Bryce and Max in our Saul Spielberg Early Childhood Center.
