Currently based in Brooklyn, Samantha Kanofsky is a freelance journalist, blogger, environmentalist, and community organizer. After visiting Israel and Palestine in college, she became active with innovative interfaith partnerships for peace and justice in the region, including studying at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and volunteering with under-served Arab and Jewish populations in Jaffa-Tel Aviv. She has also been actively engaged with natural disaster relief work, service learning travel, social enterprise, and storytelling for early-stage startups. Her worldview is informed by her multi-cultural Jewish-Korean background, impatience with technological-dependency, and love of sharing smiles with strangers. When she’s not writing, you can find her hiking, watching baseball, hanging out with kids, or listening to the Grateful Dead.
