Meet the 2018-2019 Facilitator Cohorts

Jackie Zais

Greater DC Cohort

Jackie is the Director of Community Engagement at GatherDC. She has spent four years working with GatherDC to help people find the Jewish life that works for them right now and wherever they may go next. Jackie helps facilitate beloved Washington DC-area programs such as the Open Doors Fellowships, Mini Gatherings and Beyond the Tent. Every day, she meets and connects amazing people, dreams up new ideas and programming to engage and strengthen the community, and works to build vibrant Jewish life in DC. When she’s not crushing it at the GatherDC office or grabbing coffee with community members, you can catch her reading at the zoo, cooking a feast for friends, or making hysterical pop culture references that make every conversation a little more awesome.
