Lauren Steinberg and Rabbi Alex Ozar joined as the JLIC couple at Yale in Summer 2018! Together they’re excited to learn and cultivate a positive, flourishing spiritual community together with students and the broader Slifka Center family.
Lauren Steinberg grew up in New City, NY and received her BA and MA in political science from Columbia University. After graduation, she worked as an assistant regional director for the Anti-Defamation League’s New York Regional Office, coordinating intergroup and interfaith affairs, and then as terrorism analyst at the ADL’s national Center on Extremism. Lauren traveled around the country briefing law enforcement and government officials on domestic recruitment and radicalization and was recognized for her expertise on the subject. For the past year, Lauren has directed the Jewish Community Relations Council in Stamford, Connecticut. She is excited to dive into this next chapter of her coalition and community building work, for the opportunity to learn Torah on the job, and just to be a part of the wonderful Yale and Slifka communities! In her spare time, she reads the news and as many books as possible from the library’s non-fiction new releases section and tries to get outside as much as possible.
