Alyssa spends her days at Moishe House supporting Moishe House Without Walls hosts in New York, Michigan and the eastern half of Canada. When she’s not helping hosts learn how to plan incredible programs in their own homes for their Jewish friends, she’s planning immersive experiences for MHWOW hosts to gather together and learn from each other and Jewish educators. She is driven by her Moishe House coworkers and the MHWOW hosts she gets to watch grow closer to their Judaism every day. It would make for a strange Marvel movie, but Alyssa’s super power is cooking excellent mac ‘n’ cheese.
Prior to Moishe House, Alyssa worked at the Jewish Federation of Metro Detroit in their NEXTGen Detroit division programming for young adults. She executed a plethora of new programs, including large scale fundraisers and interfaith couples initiatives, and was named a Detroit Jewish News 36 Under 36. She holds a degree in mathematical sciences from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. Alyssa is a graduate of the Glass Leadership Institute through the Anti-Defamation League, a religious & Hebrew school teacher at Temple Beth Israel in Skokie, IL, and a board member of Delta Phi Epsilon’s National Development Corporation.
