Leah Weinstein was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. She graduated from Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia with a BA in Religious Studies and a minor in Foreign Politics with a concentration in Peace and Justice Studies. Leah loves supporting Manchester United in the English Premier League and is an avid athlete, time permitting. Outside of sports, Leah still prefers her Washington Post/NY Times in print (gasp!), does not drink coffee, and is an old soul at heart. She has a love for culture, ethnicity, and identity and joined Avodah because she believes Tikkun Olam to be one of the ‘five pillars’ of Judaism and is intrigued to learn how communal living can be successful.
