Leah Kanzer, Administrative Associate

Leah grew up davening and singing at their reform shul on Pawtucket land in Massachusetts and has since found Jewish tradition to be a guiding force in practicing liberation. She worked in administrative and organizing capacities for the labor movement at the Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor and Massachusetts Jobs with Justice.

They held farming, facilitation and teaching roles at The Food Project and FreshFarm. In addition to being NSP’s administrative associate, Leah also spends Shabbat teaching music at Kollel, NSP’s education program which has expanded their idea of how education can create possibility and help us get free. Leah likes to play anti-imperialist soccer, think about the moon, learn about Jewish herbalism, organize with Palestinian liberation movements, practice politicized somatics, and dream about Olam Haba.
