Avery Markel

Jewish Communal Leadership Program Class of 2017

Avery Markel is the Director of Community Engagement at the Jewish Grandparents Network. She lives in Louisville, KY and will be relocating to Grand Rapids, Michigan in the summer of 2024 with her husband, daughter, and their menagerie of pets. A metro-Detroit native with stops throughout the midwest and mid south, Avery's interest in social work sparked during her year in Chicago with AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps, and led her home to Michigan to matriculate in JCLP. While in the program, Avery studied Interpersonal Practice and completed field work at Jewish Family Service of Metro Detroit. JCLP continues to provide a space for Avery to learn about the ever changing landscape of Judaism in America and explore roles she may play in the field.
