Jewish Advocate & Educator and Social Media Maven Come to TBY

Amy Albertson is a Jewish advocate and educator from California. Through online activism, public speaking, and workshops, Amy empowers young Jews to be unapologetically Jewish, both online and in their everyday lives.
 
While living in Israel for 6 years, she created "The Asian Israeli," where she cataloged her experiences as a Chinese-American Jewish woman. This exploration of her own identity and relationship with Israel led her to the work she does today.
Amy has been an active voice in the Jewish community for over 10 years, since her days as the President of Hillel and Co-Founder of the Israel group on campus at Portland State University. After college, she completed an internship in Tel Aviv on a Masa Israel program. In 2015 she made Aliyah, where she dedicated her career to working for Jewish nonprofits.
Amy has been published in The Times of Israel, Hey Alma, and the Jewish Journal, as well as being featured in the Jerusalem Post, the Algemeiner, JTA and on numerous podcasts. She is also highlighted in the book Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People, by Ben Freeman.
Currently, she is a consultant for organizations such as JewBelong and the Unorthodox Podcast. She is also a digital producer at The Tel Aviv Institute.
 
Amy loves the beach, being a dog mom, and doing her best to make everyone laugh at all times. Follow her: @theamyalbertson
