Honoring a marvelous trio ...

board members

Stacey Karp and Michelle Ender

and Chief Operating Officer

Nicole Weiss

all of whom have been deeply instrumental in leading us to a new and permanent home.

Stacey Karp

Stacey Karp is the proud mother of Beit Rabban 5th grader Gabrielle, who is in her 8th year at Beit Rabban. Brought up in New Jersey, Stacey has lived on the Upper Westside for the last 25 years. Stacey and Gabrielle are long time members of DarkheiNoam.


Stacey was most recently employed by Summit Private Investments as a project manager.  Prior to that, she was Director of Strategic Initiatives at Schick Technologies, and Vice President of Operations at Bonkers Bagels in Jerusalem.  Stacey received her BA from the University of Pennsylvania, a BSEcon from Wharton, and an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.  She also attended Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies while living in Jerusalem.

Stacey enjoys all kinds of crafts including knitting, resin and weaving. For the last several years she has shared these skills with the Beit Rabban students to create auction projects for the annual dinner. She is also an avid bicycle rider and gardener, and is raising an energetic puppy, Coco. The family considers Long Beach Island a home away from home where they spend time with the extended Karp family aunts, uncles and cousins.


Stacey is the proud daughter of Rochelle Karp, a retired American history educator, and Ron Karp, an investment manager. Ron has worked hard to raise both his daughter and granddaughter as avid Mets fans.


Michelle Ender


Michelle Ender is the proud parent of 2 Beit Rabban alumni, Isabel and Jonah, and Zak, a current Beit Rabban 4th grader.  She is married to Aaron Blumenthal and they live on the Upper West Side.  The family belongs to B'nai Jeshurun and spend summers in Lake Naomi, Pennsylvania. 


A NYC native, Michelle grew up in Brooklyn, NY where she attended the Yeshivah of Flatbush. She earned her BA at the University of Pennsylvania and her JD at New York University School of Law.   


Michelle works as General Counsel of Engineers Gate, a quantitative hedge fund where she has worked since 2015. Previously, she served as legal counsel for Morgan Stanley's sales and trading desks for over 9 years.

In her free time, Michelle enjoys spending time outside, running, kayaking, snowboarding and traveling. She spends her weekends watching her kids play soccer and coaching girls' soccer for West Side Soccer League.  As her children can attest, she cannot cook but can recommend many excellent UWS restaurants. 


Michelle is the proud granddaughter of four Holocaust survivors, Isaac and Chana Aron and Bella and Meyer Ender. Their stories were heroic -- they fought boldly as Partisans and soldiers in the forests of Eastern Europe to defend their Jewish heritage. She is also the proud daughter of Helen Ender, a lifelong educator at the Yeshivah of Flatbush, and Martin Ender, a dedicated tax accountant and adviser.
