Emily Soloff

Emily Soloff began her work in interreligious and intergroup relations long before she joined AJC in 1997. She has staffed numerous Jewish/Christian dialogue groups, Christian clergy trips to Israel, and helped establish the Coalition for Interreligious Learning which brought Catholic, Jewish and Muslim educators together to discuss and change how other religions are portrayed in religious school textbooks. She serves on the National Advisors' Board of the Cardinal Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union; the Advisory Council of the Sisters of Sion (North America); and was a moderator for the 2009 International Jewish/Christian Symposium in Jerusalem sponsored by the Focolare, a Catholic lay movement. She was a presenter on the topic of interfaith education at the international Intercultural Dialogue Platform sponsored by Turkish Journalists Association in 2004. Soloff was the founding moderator of the Tertulia/Havurah dialogue for the Alliance of Latinos and Jews.

Prior to joining AJC, she worked as a reporter and editor in print and broadcasting and taught journalism at Columbia University School of Journalism, and at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She holds a Master's degree in journalism from Columbia University and a B.A. in Latin American history from Brandeis University.
