Sara Starr

Engagement Coordinator

Sara grew up in North Jersey, and went to college at Vanderbilt University. She graduated in 2018 with a B.A. in Women’s and Gender Studies and Political Science.

Sara is deeply passionate about approaching social justice from a communal, Jewish perspective. Since 2013, Sara has taught religious school and designed social justice curricula for young children. She took part in the Avodah Jewish Service Corps program in New York City, where she further developed her passion and knowledge of the intersections of Judaism and social justice. During her time at Avodah, Sara did advocacy and education at a social services agency for survivors of intimate partner violence,  continuing the work she had begun during her college years.

Sara is excited to bring her experiences in Jewish education and social justice work to engage with young Jewish adults! When she’s not spreading the word about Tivnu, you can find her using food and cooking to build community or enjoying photography and good books.
