Emma Dorn is a Southern California native, having grown up in San Diego. She graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in Psychology and Social Behavior. During her time at UCI, she became involved with Orange County Hillel, and eventually became the UC Irvine Hillel President. She then worked for two years at the University of Southern California Hillel as their Ezra Education Fellow, teaching pluralistic Jewish text study to Jewish college students. As TBT's Operations Coordinator, Emma is dedicated to making all of the behind-the-scenes run smoothly, so members can focus on what's important: Jewish community, spiritual connection, and engaging in affirming Jewish spaces. Emma only loves one thing more than being Jewish: her dog, Taiyaki.
