Krigel earns doctorate from Gratz College

The Krigel family — Isaiah (from left), Shanti, Eliyahu and Kaela Krigel — attended Eliyahu’s graduation ceremony from Gratz College in Philadelphia in May.

This summer Kansas City native Eliyahu Krigel completed his dissertation and graduated from Gratz College with a Doctorate in Jewish education.


Since 2015, Krigel has been director of education at Herzel-Ner Tamid, a Conservative congregation in Mercer Island, Washington. From 2006-2008 he served as dean of students at Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy.

Krigel is passionate about transforming the teacher and student learning process into a dynamic collaboration and engaging the community into becoming life-long Jewish learners.

He lives in Seattle, Washington, with his wife Shanti, and children Isaiah and Kaela.
