For more than 10 years, Ezra Flom has crafted experiences for learners both young and old that ignite an excitement for life and Judaism. Ezra has traveled the world both teaching and learning about Judaism, uncovering the mysteries and history of Judaism from Canada, China and Costa Rica to Baltimore, Catalina, and India. In that time he uncovered the mysteries of gardens with preschoolers; led Negev hikes for retirees; taught in Jewish Day Schools; ignited a love for learning during Hebrew School; taught university courses in service learning, rock climbing, social media, and marketing; and facilitated youth engagement across the spectrum.
Ezra has earned a master's degree in Education at American Jewish University, a California Teaching Credential from Hebrew Union College, as well as a BA in Rabbinic Literature, and a BA in Spanish Culture and Literature. More important than his formal education, Ezra is proud to be an Eagle Scout, and has been awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for his work with college students in the New Orleans and Galveston.
Looking forward Ezra is fixated on becoming a listening ear, a trusted advisor, and a “fixture” of life here at TKE.

If you’re a TKE veteran, you have probably heard the last name Mallis. Well the most well-known Mallis has a daughter, and her name is Rachel Mallis. Rachel is the youth advisor for Kol Yeladim and Kol Ami. Many have known her growing up at TKE through the years. And in addition to spending nearly half her life babysitting, Rachel also spent five years as a madricha and two years teaching first grade Religious School at Temple Kol Emeth. Drawing from her youthful spirit, Rachel loves to channel her creativity, playfulness, and artistic background into fun programs for our Jewish Youth.

Straight out of high school, Korrina decided that she loved her TKE families so much that she wanted to intern under Ezra Flom for her gap year. As Ezra's intern, she assists with publicity and marketing, administrative duties, and generally helping out wherever necessary. Many at TKE have known her over the years, but recently she changed her name from Micah to Korrina.
She has been an active member of the TKE youth groups since childhood. She most notably served as KEFTY’s Fundraising VP in the 2015-2016 school year. For her last two years of high school, she sold bagels to the hungry children before religious school. Thanks to Korrina for her contributions to the TKE team!
