ALEPH is Growing!

Welcome to Nora Chernov | Program & Event Coordinator

We are delighted to bring Nora Chernov onto our team. Nora is handling the bulk of ALEPH’s marketing and communications. She also will provide event and retreat support as needed. Nora will be the logistics contact for SouLift, the Kesher Fellowship, and the Earth-Based Judaism initiative.

Nora most recently served as Jewish Student Life Engagement Coordinator at the Rochester Institute of Technology where she also graduated summa cum laude with a degree in political science in May 2017. She relocated to West Philadelphia at the beginning of the month.

In her free time, Nora likes to read, play board games, and make her way through an extensive backlog of podcasts. Her favorite Jewish holiday is Sukkot as she loves the opportunity to open the doors wide, gather as community, and be joyous and grateful.

Stephanie Bello | Promoted to Events Manager

Stephanie has been managing all things related to programs and events for the past two years. With Kallah 2020 on the horizon, we thought it made a lot of sense to promote Stephanie to Events Manager as she is both interested in and excels at event management. She will be the lead on Kallah logistics–from space planning to housing to meals and more.

Stephanie will continue to coordinate Tikshoret, our virtual learning program, and Beloved Land, our multi-narrative Israel/Palestine program, as well as smaller retreats throughout the year.

When Stephanie is not managing Kallah, she can most likely be found spending time with her two rescue dogs, Katonah and Tolstoy, or planning her upcoming wedding with her fiancé, Aaron. Her favorite Jewish holiday is Passover, as she loves to gather family and friends around the table for joyous celebration and endless bowls of matzah ball soup!

For questions related to any upcoming events, Stephanie can be reached at or 215.247.9700, x260.
