Arlene Remz, Executive Director, Gateways: Access to Jewish Education and Nancy Mager, Director of Jewish Education Programs, Gateways: Access to Jewish Education

Arlene Remz is the Executive Director of Gateways: Access to Jewish Education, the central organization for Jewish special education in Greater Boston. Arlene began her career in special education as a counselor in the Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah in New England, but for many years her professional life in special education was separate from her volunteer work in the Jewish community. Through Gateways she has brought together these two passions—working to ensure that every Jewish child can access a Jewish education.

Nancy Mager is the Director of Jewish Education Programs for Gateways and has worked in the field of special education as a teacher and consultant, and administrator for over 20 years. Nancy has extensive training and experience in autism spectrum disorders, applied behavior analysis, and Social Thinking™. Nancy holds a Master’s in Education from Simmons College through the New England Center for Children’s partnership program, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Boston University.
