“Being Jewish is an amazing, beautiful, and positive thing, and we should never be afraid to show it.” --Amy Lin Albertson

The Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island’s Community Relations Council presents an evening with Amy Lin Albertson, a Jewish advocate, educator, and social media consultant. In her own words, Albertson curates an online presence and develops education materials around her experience as a Chinese-American Jew, “being unapologetically me so you can be you.” Working to expand our understanding of what it means to be Jewish in the world today, and particularly online, Albertson brings humor and empathy to educational resources for the next generation of Jews.
