A Wider Bridge welcomes 2017 Leadership Mission Alumnus Nadyia Al Noor as our New York Summer Intern! Nadiya is a Queer Muslim Zionist and Interfaith Activist from Binghamton, NY.
Nadiya Al-Noor is a 22-year-old Muslim activist against antisemitism. She graduated from Goucher College with honors in Russian. She is a second year graduate student at Binghamton University in New York in the dual-degree Student Affairs Administration and Public Administration program. Nadiya came out of the closet at 13 and has been active in the LGBTQ community ever since. She has a popular blog with The Times of Israel, where she writes about antisemitism, Zionism, and the Jewish LGBT movement. Nadiya recently returned from the 2017 A Wider Bridge mission trip to Israel.
Nadiya will be working in A Wider Bridge’s New York Office with Quentin Hill and Tye Gregory to build LGBTQ support for Israel and LGBTQ Israelis. “I chose to intern with AWB because I really like the work they do to bring people together,” Nadiya says. “I hope that I can learn more about how to run a nonprofit.”
Arthur Slepian, Executive Director of A Wider Bridge, said: “we are so pleased to have Nadiya joining A Wider Bridge as a summer intern. She participated in our recent mission to Israel and her perspective added a great deal to the group. A Wider Bridge believes that LGBTQ people and allies of all faiths have something important to add to our work, and we are proud to welcome Nadiya on to our team.”
