Erica Shaps

...
Erica Shaps, Middle East Program Coordinator Prior to joining Encounter, Erica spent two years as an Entwine Fellow with the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) in Israel. Through this role, she helped vulner­able popu­la­tions with work­force devel­op­ment, specif­i­cally Arab citi­zens of Israel and Haredim. She simul­ta­ne­ously partic­i­pated in Encounter's Davar Acher Leadership Fellowship. Erica grad­u­ated from Brandeis University in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies and International and Global Studies and a minor in Peace, Conflict, and Coexistence Studies. She first actu­al­ized her commit­ment to intra/interfaith work and conflict trans­for­ma­tion by co-founding the Brandeis Interfaith Group and Brandeis Visions for Israel in an Evolving World - a student-led initia­tive creating more construc­tive conver­sa­tions about Israel and the Middle East on campus.

Erica Shaps

...
Erica Shaps Erica Shaps, orig­i­nally from the Chicago area, recently grad­u­ated from Brandeis University with a double major in Islamic & Middle Eastern Studies and International & Global Studies with a minor in Peace, Conflict & Coexistence Studies. She first explored reli­gious pluralism when she co-founded the Brandeis Interfaith Group as an Interfaith Youth Core Fellow (IFYC). She also served on Hillel at Brandeis' student board and co-founded Brandeis Visions for Israel in an Evolving World (bVIEW) - an initia­tive creating more construc­tive conver­sa­tions about Israel on campus.
Why Erica wanted to be a Davar Acher Fellow Erica wanted to be a Davar Acher Fellow to hone her facil­i­ta­tion and lead­er­ship skills while gaining a deeper under­standing of how her iden­tity as an American Jew shapes her rela­tion­ship with the conflict. She is hopes to utilize these expe­ri­ences as she works to create a more construc­tive conver­sa­tion about the conflict in her community.
