    My Story

    Leslie is currently the Director of Education for the JFCS Holocaust Center in San Francisco. She hopes to inspire students and teachers alike with her passion for Holocaust education. Leslie taught Holocaust studies at Tarbut V’Torah Community Day School in Irvine, where she also accompanied her students on study trips to Poland and Israel. She received her BA in History (with a focus on Holocaust Studies) from Loyola Marymount University, where she studied under world renowned Holocaust scholar, Dr. Michael Berenbaum. Leslie has worked as a museum educator for both the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance and the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. Merging her two passions for theatre and history, she has also served as a historical consultant for multiple high school productions of “The Diary of Anne Frank,” one of which she directed herself. Leslie is a graduate of the Orange County/Long Beach Anti-Defamation League’s Glass Leadership Institute and was selected as an educational consultant for Chapman University’s Rodgers Center for Holocaust Education. She was honored to be chosen by the OC Register as one of Orange County’s Most Influential 2019 for her ongoing work with high school students in combatting antisemitism.
