Brief info

We are pleased to welcome native New Yorker Emilie to TJC and Princeton!

Emilie Kovit is excited to join the staff of TJC. After years working in corporate publishing and Human Resources positions, Emilie felt drawn to the Jewish communal life. From 2013 to 2022, Emilie was the Executive Director of Congregation B’nai Israel in Rumson, NJ, a small to mid-sized conservative synagogue in the heart of the Jersey Shore, where among her myriad duties including running logistics for all synagogue programming, she thrived at engaging with membership of all ages. Now she has come to us where she will be able to capitalize on those experiences in her new role as Director of Programming and Engagement.
Emilie is a native New Yorker who moved to NJ in 2005. She lives in Middletown, NJ in Monmouth County with her husband, Dr. Andrew Meyer, a Chinese History professor at Brooklyn College, and her daughter, Ada, who is in her senior year of High School. She has a Bachelors degree in English Literature from the State University of New York at Binghamton and a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Hunter College.
In her free time, Emilie is a bookworm, reading a wide range of genres, loves crossword puzzles and the New York Times Spelling Bee, plays guitar and sings, and enjoys hanging out with family and friends and her two cats.
