Dani Levine serves on the Advisory Council of the Avodah Institute for Social Change.
Dani (she/her) is the Director of Social Impact at Hillel International. Dani was born and raised in Washington, DC and fell in love with the Jewish Social Justice community through Habonim Dror camps and programming. Dani has a BA in Environmental Studies and Comparative American Studies from Oberlin College and received her Masters of Public Health (MPH) in Environmental Health and Policy from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. Dani spent a few years in San Francisco and then New Orleans in the environmental non-profit, consulting, and environmental policy world, before finally succumbing to that still small voice calling her to full-time Jewish Professional life. Prior to joining Hillel, Dani spent a decade with Avodah, first as the local New Orleans Director and ultimately as the National Program Director, responsible for overseeing all Avodah programming across multiple cities and programs. Dani has also had the privilege of being a member of the IOWA Project Ovdim leadership cohort, where she studies Musar with other rad Jewish thinkers. Dani lives in the best city in the world, New Orleans, with her wife and three kids. When she’s not working or organizing with fellow congregants, Dani can be found on the parade route, at the fais-do-do stage, or cooking up some freshly caught fish.
