Meet the Team
Director, Program Facilitator and Jewish Educator
“I’m a passionate believer in our common humanity and love working with young people to explore identity, belonging and diversity. I hope that, through our work, young people can develop a better understanding of people from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds. I know I have!
I come from a Russian-Jewish, Southern USA background but have lived in Australia for most of my life. My parents were social justice activists in the Civil Rights movement in the USA and I inherited their passion.”
