2.15 Mrs. Alana Weinberg - Binyan Yisroel


Mrs. Alana Weinberg, is the Founder and Executive Director of Binyan Yisroel, a new and exciting school in Baltimore MD, educating students with language based learning differences. Alana currently lives in Baltimore with her husband, Dr. Aaron Weinberg and her four children Etiel, Akiva, Adina and Yoni. Three out of the Weinberg's four children have dyslexia.

Throughout her life, Alana always felt drawn to working with children in a school setting. Alana attended Bar Ilan University followed by Stern College and Bank Street College. Alana holds certifications in Jewish Education Leadership, Educational Coaching and is trained in multiple learning modalities for children with dyslexia.

In the beginning of her teaching career,  Alana taught at New England Hebrew Academy in Boston. After Boston, Alana became the director of Early Childhood Education at Stein Yeshiva in Yonkers, NY. In 2014 Weinberg's oldest son was diagnosed with dyslexia thus began Alana’s educational journey discovering everything she could possibly about language based learning differences. The Weinberg’s moved to Baltimore in 2017 and sought the best school to support him. This led Mrs. Weinberg to speak with Dr. Aviva Weisbord of Shemesh who tasked Alana with opening a yeshiva school for children with language based learning differences and thus, Binyan Yisroel was created.

Binyan Yisroel is a fully comprehensive school for students who have a diagnosed language based learning Difference. Binyan Yisroel students receive an excellent Jewish and general studies education. Students receive direct explicit instruction in both English Reading Intervention as well as Kriah in a two to one ratio.
