Jourdan Lewanda

Administrative and Ritual Assistant

Jourdan Lewanda (she/her) is Mishkan’s Administrative and Ritual Assistant, taking on an expanded role after two great years working with Mishkan’s programs team. Though you may have seen Jourdan working a Shabbat service or community event, you may not know that she’s also helped revamp the Hebrew slides for the High Holiday livestream, built a hefty percentage of the furniture in Mishkan’s office space, or that she is also working as an actor and visual artist in Chicago and beyond! If you are curious, Jourdan’s collages will next be published in Feels Zine (or you can find her on instagram at @jourdanlewandacollages), and she will next be on stage this fall at Theater J in Washington, DC. You can find this part of her life online at
