Emma Sesar grew up in Los Angeles, California. She began her love of Jewish education at Wilshire Blvd Temple, while attending Brawerman Elementary School and Camp Hess Kramer. She literally grew up at camp as her parents met there many years ago! She began to attend the moment she was able and made the most of every summer, including four years on staff as a counselor, and then most recently as a unit head. These formative Jewish experiences inspired Emma to pursue a career in Jewish Education.

During her time at Tulane, Emma developed and expanded her Jewish education skills through her work at Hillel, participation in The Nachshon Project undergraduate fellowship, and involvement at Touro Synagogue, both as a religious school teacher and Assistant Youth Educator. After she graduated from Tulane, Emma moved to Israel for a year as a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow. She worked in Rishon Letzion, teaching English to middle school students. In the Fall of 2023, Emma began her Masters of Jewish Education at JTS Davidson, where she is able to combine her passion for Judaism and her love of teaching in order to become the best educator she can be. She is also eager continue her Jewish Leadership Training through the Nachshon Graduate Fellowship.
