Shai Papkin

Head of Judaic Studies

Shalom! My name is Stephen Papkin and I am the third and fourth grade Judaic Studies teacher and Judaic Studies Department Head here at Hillel Community Day School. This will be my seventh year teaching at HCDS. When I’m not teaching, you can find me spending time with my dog, Ruby, or kayaking on the Finger Lakes. I also love bass fishing, hiking, and camping. I am a Rochester native, and I love seeing our Jewish community grow! It is going to be a fantastic year!
