Erica Goldman has been an engineering linguist, a high school English teacher, and has taught Israeli dancing on five continents (so far!). In 2011, Erica joined the Global Jewish Education department at New Community Jewish (now deToledo) High School in Los Angeles and helped coordinate and implement both their three-week and three-month exchange programs with Tel Aviv high schools. In 2015, she became an Educator for the Foundation for Jewish Camp’s Cornerstone Fellowship and launched Ma’agal, an initiative to improve Israeli dance education at schools and camps across the nation.
A two-time Brandeis University graduate, Erica holds an MBA as well as a Masters in Jewish Professional Leadership and is a grateful Wexner Fellow/Davidson Scholar. Before joining Bronfman, Erica was the Chief Program Officer at JPro, an organization dedicated to supporting all those who work for Jewish organizations across the US and Canada. Erica lives in Brooklyn NY and loves taking really, really long walks.
We are shocked and heartbroken by the events in Israel, and we are holding our Israeli community close during this tragic time. We feel it is more important than ever to continue our work of building a vibrant and diverse Jewish community, developing leadership in the Jewish world and beyond, and helping teens connect deeply with the Jewish experience and people in Israel and America.
