Interests: Social justice, interfaith issues, collective philanthropy
Becca Linden has a passion for social justice work, and strives to connect that passion back to Jewish content, tradition, and community. She began this work with both AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps in Chicago, as a community organizer for an interfaith nonprofit and with Pardes in Jerusalem , as the co-creator for the Pardes Social Justice track as the Weinstein Memorial Fellow. Her desire to help worthy nonprofits fulfill their potential drew her to the NYU Wagner/Skirball MPA-MA in Hebrew and Judaic Studies program. Most recently, she worked in development for the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding, and as a researcher for the Natan Fund. She currently works as the Chief Operating Officer of Eden Village Camp, a Jewish environmental camp and retreat center. She also recently founded a democratic giving circle philanthropy for her extended family of 150 people through the PresenTense Fellowship, and now serves as the chair of its board. A native of Charlottesville, Virginia and a graduate of Weslayan University, Becca loves to sing gospel music and to play bluegrass on her viola. Becca is a recipient of the Deans' Scholarship at Wagner as well as the Steinberg and Handler Scholarships.
