Sarah was born and raised in Baltimore County, and has been deeply involved with JUFJ for several years – as a Jeremiah fellow, as a Co-Chair of the Maryland State Labor and Housing Justice Team, and as a member of the Maryland Core Team and the Baltimore Leadership Council. Her interest in economic justice issues began with her study of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Scripps College in Claremont, CA, where she wrote her senior thesis on how parental leave and childcare policies impact working mothers and women’s economic security. After college, Sarah lived in Jerusalem for a year, where she participated in the Israel Government Fellows program and worked for the Israel Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs’ Department of International Relations. Sarah also serves as the President of Camp Louise Circle, the alumni organization for the Jewish sleepaway camp. She enjoys dancing, making and drinking coffee, attending live concerts and theater performances, and saying “hi” to dogs.
