Naomi Sobel

Naomi Sobel is a 30-year-old writer, organizer, educator and queer femme with roots in New York, a soft spot for Chicago, family in the Bay Area, and a home base in Jamaica Plain, Mass. She has deep roots in progressive Judaism and a burgeoning interest in harnessing her class privilege for radical social change. She works as a donor engagement coordinator at the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice, raising money and building relationships to advance lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) human rights around the globe. Before joining Astraea’s staff, Naomi spent two years running the teen program at Temple Israel of Boston; she has also held positions at The Nation and Boston Review magazines, and at Jewish Funds for Justice (now Bend the Arc).
