Eli has transformed kneading dough into an empowering experience for young Jews across the United States. After founding Challah for Hunger while attending Scripps College in Claremont, California, she was cited in Bill Clinton’s book, Giving, as an exemplar of “compelling” giving. Originally from Austin, Texas, Eli graduated from high school early to intern in the DC offices of former Senator Mark Dayton and went on to attend Young Judaea’s Year Course in Israel. An alumna of the PresenTense Institute and ROI, she coordinated Mark Strama’s Campaign Academy for high school and college students to learn campaign basics in 2006, and served as a program associate of Hazon’s Food Team before assuming full-time directorship at Challah for Hunger.
