Mrs. Lynn Finson

BEN 5021-reducedMrs. Lynn Finson,

served as the Educational Director of Midreshet Rachel from 1995 - 2013. In that capacity she guided both the educational curriculum and the spiritual and personal growth of the student body. She completed a Master's of Science in Counseling at Hunter College in New York. Her early work as a guidance counselor and teacher at Yeshiva University High School and college guidance counselor at Bruriah High School in Elizabeth, NJ, allowed her to combine innovative educational programming with counseling strategies to enable every student's personal growth.  Mrs. Finson was greatly influenced by the philosophy of HaGaon Rav Yisroel Ze'ev Gustman, zt"l, with whom she formed a talmida relationship during an early visit to Israel in 1979.  R. Gustman's message of drawing students in with closeness and acceptance has been the guiding force in her teaching and counseling.
