Meet the 2012-2014 ISJL Education Fellows!

We’re excited to welcome five new Fellows, who will spend the next two years in the ISJL’s education department, serving communities across the South – and sharing their stories and experiences with all of us! Please join us in welcoming Elaine, Sam, Dan, Amanda and Adam. They’re about to embark on a journey that will impact ISJL communities now, and will impact their own lives forever.



L-R: Adam Wassell, Elaine Berenblat, Amanda Winer, Sam Kahan, Dan Ring
