Diana Zeltser

Founder and Program Coordinator, Mid Island Y JCC

Diana Zeltser is from Odessa, Ukraine. She immigrated with her family in 1995, and continued her education in Computer Science at Hunter College, where she began to be active at Hillel. Her passion to educate children fully developed when she became a mom. In 2008 she founded a company, Happy Tunes Inc, that specializes in Children Enrichment and Entertainment. Since then, she taught mathematics, Russian, and Music&Movement classes at various children centers and Jewish organizations. She wrote curricula and took part in creating and editing textbooks. She was awarded Maestro of Outreach title in Kindermusik International in 2012. In the same year, she created a local community, Families of Russian speaking Jewish Long Island, as her BluePrint Fellowship project of COJECO that is continuing to bloom and attracts families with children from birth to high school ages. Currently her project is known as BRIJE of Mid Island Y JCC. She organizes Holiday celebrations, Shabbat gatherings, and volunteering events. Every event is unique and provides Jewish components for every age group. Diana's strong background in STEAM education, love for Olympic sports, and her passion to teach help to ensure her continuing success in her work.
