Greetings from JOIN’s New Interim Fellowship Director

 

I moved to Boston in 2009 from Milwaukee, WI in search of deeper Jewish community committed to liberation and celebrating Shabbat at the same time.  I was searching for a place to be a bigger, fuller version of myself.  I found JOIN.  Through my placement at the Jewish Community Relations Council, my phenomenal cohort, and support from JOIN, I developed a stronger confidence in being an organizer and in being myself.

Now, I am thrilled to be the next interim Fellowship Director and feel lucky be a part of this current cohort’s journey. I have benefited immensely from the JOIN alumni network. For the last four years, I have been surrounded by brilliant minds and serious organizers responsible for movement building and making concrete changes in peoples’ lives. I have worked on several campaigns with JOIN alumni, helped found a youth coalition with JOIN alumni, and have been supported through hard times by JOIN alumni. I am grateful for this community and for this current opportunity to help shape it.  I hope to support and push the current fellows to develop their powerful organizing tools, their understanding of how power works in the world, and their powerful selves.
