Stella is extremely excited to join the LCLJ educator team! Born and raised in New York City, Stella discovered Jewish culture by going to Camp Laurelwood, located in Madison, Connecticut, for nine years as a camper and a counselor. She found camp to be an enriching and spiritual Jewish experience, as was her first trip to Israel in June 2018. Stella graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a BA in Sociology with minors in History and Deaf Studies. In her free time, she enjoys going to Zumba and yoga classes, seeing musicals on Broadway, and looking at food menus.
