Ruth helps to facilitate and coordinate the myriad student life and community service initiatives spearheaded by the JTS community. Her work before coming to JTS has taken her around the world working with youth, refugees, and trade unions. She has also worked with domestic Jewish organizations during her time at the Jewish Outreach Institute. She’s always happy to discuss her service in the Peace Corps, local volunteer opportunities, arcane medieval trivia, Harry Potter, international literature, music, travel, and really, anything at all—so come on by!
