Director of Institutional Advancement
A Philadelphia native, Sara moved back to the region with a passion for the upbuilding of her hometown as a true city of brotherly love, and a passion for soft pretzels. Sara most recently lived in Israel as a member of an urban kibbutz, or commune. During her time overseas, she worked in informal education with Israeli and North American youth to create a more just, inclusive, and unified society.
Sara discovered the strength of Interfaith Philadelphia as a participant in the first cohort of Interfaith Philadelphia’s Visionary Women program, a program close to her heart. She is honored to help the organization continue to offer this type of meaningful programming.
Sara previously served as the Director of Habonim Dror North America, a Jewish youth movement that focuses on a sense of responsibility and social justice through a Jewish lens. She also served as the Founding Director of the American Zionist Youth Council, an organization that brings together Jewish youth from across the religious and political spectrum. Sara views bridge building as essential to creating the society of which we dream. She currently serves on the Social Action committee of the Old York Road Kehilla, a joint project of the Jewish congregations on the Old York Road corridor.
When away from her desk, Sara is most often cooking or crocheting, gifts of creation to those she loves.
