Hi, I’m Rebecca! I recently graduated from Wesleyan University with a B.A. in psychology and writing. There, I lived in the environmentalism- and sustainability-themed program house and served as the hesed chair of the campus Jewish community. I ran events centered around earth-connection and climate & food justice, and spearheaded an annual Jewish community pre-orientation camping trip for incoming freshman. Originally from New York, I moved to the Bay to be closer to nature and immerse myself in its vibrant Jewish communities. I put down roots by working in the KPFA newsroom and at the Temescal farmers market, where I’ve been fortunate to both connect with local activists and engage with local food systems in new and meaningful ways. After attending my first public program at the farm, I knew I had found a home. I’m grateful to be a part of the Urban Adamah team so that I can help make it a home for so many others, too. When I’m not working, you can find me listening to a podcast, hiking Claremont Canyon, or finding the next opportunity to dance.
