has spent a decade designing transformative group experiences for young people and adults. She loves creating spaces where we can get a taste of the world as it could be.
Previously, Chloe served as the Fellowship Director at Urban Adamah in Berkeley, leading cohorts of emerging adults through semester-long, residential deep dives into sustainable agriculture, Judaism, mindfulness, and social justice. Before that, she worked as a community organizer in Boston, where she trained with JOIN for Justice and built power with young people at The Food Project. After a season of personal loss, she trained as a chaplain at UCSF Mission Bay Hospital’s residency program, offering spiritual care to pediatric and adult patients who were ill and dying and their families, and earning 3 units of CPE. She is the co-founder of the Covid Grief Network—now a project of Reimagine—which has offered over 1,000 free grief support sessions and over 25 multi-session support groups to young adults who have lost someone close to Covid-19. She is also the author of Being with Grief, a creative workbook for loss.
Chloe holds a B.A. in Religion from Carleton College and an M.A. in Education from Harvard University. Her research at Harvard focused on what ritual, game, and performance studies can teach us about designing immersive learning experiences.
She is currently a student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, where she is a Wexner Graduate Fellow. As a rabbinical student, she has interned at Congregation Anshe Emet and Wise Temple in Ohio, Centre College in Kentucky, and the Center for Small Town Jewish Life in Maine, and has spent time learning at Pardes in Jerusalem and the Middlebury Language School in Vermont.
Chloe currently serves on the steering committee of the Communal Loss Adaptation Project at Svara, as the Climate Arts and Spiritual Adaptation fellow at Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action, and as an entrepreneurial fellow with Atra: Center for Rabbinic Innovation. She lives in West Philly with her husband, Jesse, and baby, Akiva.
“I came into this experience not knowing what to expect and walked out with 39+ friends who get me in a way no one else ever has."
