The ADL Arizona office is excited to welcome its new Associate Regional Director, Marc Krell who joined the ADL on July 14, 2021.
No stranger to building bridges within and between communities, Marc has dedicated his career to combatting antisemitism and advocating for civil rights through education, outreach, and programs for people of all ages.
Most recently, Marc led community relations and outreach for Hirsch Academy, a Title 1 public charter school in south Scottsdale, where he developed partnerships and programs to increase access to education, services, and resources for at-risk Latinx students and their families.
Prior to that, Marc held a variety of positions in education in which he designed and led cross-cultural programs to educate people of all ages and faiths about Judaism and the history of antisemitism. He worked as a Jewish Day School teacher, director of synagogue religious schools, Visiting Associate Professor at the University of California, Riverside and Assistant Professor of Judaic Studies at the University of Arizona.
“I am thrilled to have Marc join ADL Arizona at this critical time,” Marc Lerner, ADL AZ Regional Board Chair says. “His years of dynamic and diverse experience in community engagement combined with his passion for ADL’s mission will provide numerous synergies as we work together to move ADL Arizona forward and serve as a key voice across the state.”
Marc Krell earned his PhD in The Cultural and Historical Studies of Religions at the Graduate Theological Union, a Master’s Degree in Jewish Studies and Education at the American Jewish University and a BA in Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
