Alysse Fuchs

Alysse Fuchs serves on the New Orleans Advisory Council at Avodah. 

She moved to New Orleans to participate in Avodah’s Jewish Service Corps as a corps member in 2013–2014. After working as a religious school teacher, waitress and babysitter, Fuchs returned to Avodah in 2016 and spent 2 years as the Program Director for Avodah New Orleans. Alysse is currently in school full time at the Tulane School of social work. She feels fortunate to engage in a vibrant Jewish community with those who similarly prioritize social justice and believes that New Orleans is one of the best cities in the world.
