Laurel Murray joined Or Ami's staff as our School Registrar and Rabbi Julia's assistant in May 2014. Laurel is impressed by the comfortable, convivial atmosphere she has found at Or Ami. She is also enjoying the wide variety of responsibilities and challenges that come with her job, as she strives to support our exciting learning programs. Laurel is certain that the work will continue to interest and challenge her.
Laurel and her husband, Michael, a Walt Disney Imagineer, live in Westlake Village with their young adult children, Rowena and Duncan. The Murray family also includes three terriers, who enjoy their early morning walks with "Mom" before she comes to work.
Laurel recently performed in a local production of "8", about the court case that found California's Prop 8 unconstitutional, and hopes to discover more opportunities to get back to her acting roots in her spare time. She also enjoys quilting and cooking, and is writing a play for her mother back home in New Jersey.
