Sharon Weinstein, Assistant to the Director, KCAC
Sharon Weinstein joined the KCAC as Assistant to the Director after volunteering at the office and recognizing the importance of Christian and Jewish leaders partnering together in their efforts to support Israel. She is a former Bible studies and mathematics teacher who has taught at high schools, synagogues and post-high school programs in the U.S and Israel. She has a Masters degree in Bible from Yeshiva University and is currently a doctoral candidate in Educational Leadership there.
