Erica Frankel

Erica is the Director for Strategic Development for the Jewish Learning Fellowship at Hillel International's Office of Innovation. In 2013, while at the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU, Erica worked with many wonderful colleagues to triple the size of the program on that campus. Now, in the program's 8th year, Erica has enjoyed working with several excellent educators from across the country to expand JLF's unique blend of tapas, big questions, and community-building from one campus to eight.

At age 3, Erica started introducing herself to her parents' friends as a popular radio host from NPR. At age 5, she told her family she wanted to grow up to be a "multi-talented artist." She is now a NYC-based dancer, performer, and choreographer. She is the recipient of three grants from NYU to study dance in Israel, and completed her MA in 2015 by creating a short dance film inspired by a particularly bizarre midrash. Erica has studied at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies and at Yeshiva University, where she earned a certificate in Experiential Jewish Education. 

She lives in Harlem with her fiancé and her cat.
