In 2016, Shoshana Madick moved to New Orleans to participate in Avodah. In New Orleans, she found a deep love for this incredible city and a home in a beautifully unique Jewish community. Shoshana began working for Avodah in April 2019 as the New Orleans Program Director. Professionally she has spent her time in New Orleans as an educator in both Jewish and non-Jewish spaces, working primarily with marginalized students. Outside of work, she loves sitting on the bayou, kayaking in the swamps, walking around New Orleans, and listening to music and stories.
