At the Center for Diversity Education, Ayelet helped plan and manage LGBTQ and Jewish programming both on campus at UNC Asheville and in the greater community. She also supervised seven student interns, helped plan two youth social justice conferences, served on the leadership board for Young Adult Jews of Asheville (YAJA), and represented the Center in its collaborative efforts with other local organizations. Ayelet helped work on a component of the Queer Studies Conference at UNCA, where she planned and hosted a Queer Seder for the first night of Passover and presented a paper. She also assisted with recruiting six new student interns for the 2015 – 2016 school year, planned the June Me2We Youth Summit, and put together a cohort of alumni who interned at the Center in past years.
Ayelet looks forward to continuing her work in Jewish Studies. She was recently accepted to the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem and was nominated to receive a Social Justice Fellowship. She plans to continue work at the intersection of social justice and Jewish values, and feels that her work as a Tzedek Resident has helped her realize how she can do this. She hopes to go to graduate school to become a librarian in a public library.
