Adina joined the J Street U team after graduating from Bates College with a BA in Religious Studies. She served as a J Street U Northeast Regional Co-Chair from 2014-2015 and helped establish the J Street U chapter at Bates. She first traveled to the region in 2010 on a class trip and returned in 2014 for a semester with the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies. While there, she began researching the connections between narratives of Jewish victimhood and political orientations with regards to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and turned her research into a senior thesis when she returned to Bates. Adina was born in New York but raised in Southern California, and now lives in Los Angeles.
