Erika Purdy

Project Administrator for the Jewish Emergent Network

Erika is thrilled to join the Jewish Emergent Network team after a three-year stint at the International Rescue Committee in Dallas, where she helped refugees find employment. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington and is currently working on her Masters in Human Rights with Southern Methodist University.

Prior to making the trek to Los Angeles, Erika was an active lay leader with Atid and Temple Emanu-el in Dallas, assisting with event coordination and programming for young adults. She is obsessed with music, podcasts, and the new golden age of television. Erika is excited to combine her passions for Judaism and social justice in work with the Jewish Emergent Network. Call Erika for Jewish Emergent Network logistics, especially scheduling, or to give her a hot local tip…she’s an L.A. newbie!
