Steffa Burke, second-third grade teacher, may be a familiar voice if you listen to WMUH-FM an Friday mornings.  She hosts “Kol Ha-Emek,” the Voice of the Valley, Muhlenberg College’s Jewish culture program, from 8:00 till 9:30 AM.  Steffa is also music director of the Lehigh Valley’s Gay Men’s Chorus, and further, is the director of the Liberty Bell Museum in Allentown.  She teaches her students with a solid Judaica grounding and a great sense of fun.  What kids wouldn’t want to learn the Hebrew letters by forming them out of Play-Do – which they made themselves?
