About Jeannelle D’Isa

Jeannelle is Temple Micah’s Director of Membership Engagement and has loved her job since 2014. She lives in extremely suburban Maryland and is interested in dough (all kinds) and broadening access to a Jewish journey for everyone. In 2023, she’ll spend three months learning the Jewish way to care for those who have died. She will also teach several dozen middle schoolers to make pickles, challah, and icebox cake, because balance is important. About every five years she writes a book.
