“From the moment I was introduced to Kids4Peace last summer, I knew I had found an organization I believed in, one that I could see myself working for and I made it my goal to do just that. After 10 months doing various projects as a volunteer, I am honored to join the Kids4Peace family as the Operations Manager in the new Washington, D.C. office.

Shoshana

I hail from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and grew up in the reform Jewish community. I received my B.A. in Government and International Politics with a minor in Middle East Studies from George Mason University and my M.A. in Conflict Resolution and Mediation from Tel Aviv University. I have focused most of my studies on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, transformative dialogue, and the necessity of people-to-people projects to foster change. I believe that there is no greater goal than to empower youth to become activists and leaders in their communities. I have seen first-hand the successes of these programs and I am thrilled to make a contribution to this movement.

I currently reside in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C. I am a member of 2239’s steering committee and I work part time at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. In my free time I enjoy exploring the city (and its many restaurants), drawing and painting, catching great live music, hiking and backpacking, and having intellectually stimulating conversations.”
