Eleanor is thrilled to join the LCLJ family as an Educator this year. Originally from Queens NY, Eleanor grew up going to Hillcrest Jewish Center and attributes her love for Jewish learning to many years spent at after-school Hebrew School, Ramah sleep away camp, and countless Shabbatot with USY youth group. Eleanor brings with her over a decade of experience in formal and informal Jewish education, including teaching Hebrew School in Palo Alto CA, leading Shabbat youth services in NYC, serving as Hillel President at Cornell University, leading the “Jewglers” club at Google, and teaching youth programming at the Reconstructionist Society for Advancement of Judaism (SAJ). Eleanor graduated from Cornell University in 2011 with a degree in Industrial and Labor Relations and minors in Jewish Studies, Education, and Law and Society.
Prior to LCLJ, Eleanor spent five years at Google working on minority business development and more recently, served as a Community Organizer during the 2016 Presidential Election. In her free time, Eleanor enjoys national park hiking, Latin dancing and searching New York City for the best chocolate babka in town. She looks forward to meeting everyone in the LCLJ community!
