Sarah Salem (she/her) grew up on the unceded lands of the Ohlone and Coast Miwok peoples, also known as San Francisco and Marin. Her ancestors are Irish settlers and Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews, some of whom were recent immigrants. Sarah is devoted to the work and play of re-membering our connections; those with ourselves, each other, the more-than-human world, and a sense of the sacred. She is a student of plant lore and healing, and also has training as an earth-based, feminist ritualist from the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute.
In the past, Sarah has held roles at organizations including Camp Tawonga, the JCC East Bay Afterschool Program, Eden Village West Camp, Mishkan Chicago’s Mensch Academy, and Hazon’s Teva Program. She currently also works as a mentor with Wilderness Torah’s rite of passage program called B’naiture. Sarah graduated from UC Davis with a BA in Theater and a minor in Education. She is so excited to be joining the WE community and deeply grateful to be weaving and woven with the wisdom and heart that has been cultivated in this community for many years.
