Meet the 2018-2019 Facilitator Cohorts

Bryan Susman

Greater NYC Cohort

Bryan is currently a Program Associate in the Jewish Education Program at Facing History and Ourselves. Previously, Bryan spent six years as a high school music teacher for predominantly low-income students of color, where he centered his curriculum on the music of historically marginalized communities and situated these musical traditions in their social, historical, and political contexts. After completing the Dorot Fellowship in Israel, Bryan felt a pressing need to use the skills he had developed throughout his career as a teacher to build dialogue with Jewish students around issues of race, inequity, and privilege. Bryan holds a bachelor’s degree in Comparative Literature, Neuroscience, and Jazz Studies from the University of Southern California and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership with an emphasis in Advanced Teaching and Learning from the University of North Florida.
