Sarra Alpert

Sarra Alpert is the Director of the Avodah Institute for Social Change.

She formerly held the role of National Program Director at Avodah and is an alum of the Avodah Jewish Service Corps (2002-2003). Sarra feels lucky to get to work to build activist communities that can support and challenge each other in anti-oppressive, transformative social justice movement-building in Jewish communal spaces and beyond. She is also on the faculty for the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s Cornerstone Seminar and is a Schusterman Fellow. Previously, Sarra served two terms as a board member for Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, taught in the NYU Expository Writing Program and in a range of Hebrew schools and other settings. She went to graduate school at NYU and undergraduate at University of California San Diego. She can often be found cooking with and for friends, reading or listening to podcasts on the subway, or enjoying New York City’s parks, events and various surprises.
