Jordan Pelavin

Jordan Pelavin has been involved in both the Jewish and political communities for her entire life, and is thrilled to be working with Keshet—where she can bring her passions together. Jordan has experience working in Jewish camps (URJ Camps Harlam, Kutz and Crane Lake), synagogues (Congregation Shir Ha-Ma’a lot in Irvine, CA), youth groups (NFTY, BBYO) and more—providing both educational programing and enriching personal connections. She loves finding ways to add Jewish educational content to any and every program. With a degree in Communication from Bowie State University, Jordan is excited to bring Keshet’s stories to life. Originally from Maryland, Jordan will happily extol the virtues of Old Bay and the Chesapeake. She cares deeply about political engagement, pop music and libraries and will never say no to a trivia night.
