Tracie Bernstein

NTS Founder and Director

Tracie Bernstein created Nourishing the Soul Workshops in 2020 as the culmination of 30 years of work developing, facilitating and sharing programs that help people access meaningful Jewish experience.  Tracie has learned from and worked with some of the Jewish community's most exciting and talented innovators. Working as a facilitator trainer, Tracie has guided educators and clergy across the country to implement and lead programs in their communities. She served as Assistant Director of Israel Programs for Young Judaea and Marketing Director for the Harold Grinspoon Foundation before joining Moving Traditions, where she trained facilitators to launch their award winning Rosh Hodesh: It's a Girl Thing program across the US.  After studying and working in Israel, Tracie partnered with Rabbi Aryeh Ben David to help spearhead his brilliant Ayeka program, engaging American Jewish Adults in soulful education.

Utilizing the NTS pedagogy of personally engaging those in a space to collaborate, listen and create shared vision, Tracie has facilitated staff retreats, non-profit leadership trainings and seminars. She graduated with Bachelor's degrees from Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary. She has lived in an Atlanta suburb with her husband, Rabbi Michael Bernstein, and their children since 2009. In addition to her work with Israel Bonds and Friends of the IDF, Tracie has co-written the 8 hour training for MACoM (Metro Atlanta Community Mikvah), and trained 50 guides to welcome guests.  Tracie's adult NTS spiritual workshops are available to the public and for private groups and institutions. The turnkey Nourishing Their Souls adolescent curriculum is available for sale with teacher training. NTS Teen Leadership Seminars began Fall of 2021.
