Temple Beth El is very excited to welcome Nicole Sidman to our staff team as Social Justice Outreach Coordinator. Nicole has been part of our Temple Beth El community since 2017 when her family moved to Charlotte from New York. Nicole graduated from the University of Michigan Law School with a Juris Doctorate and has dedicated much of her career to social justice and organizational work. Among her roles, she has served as a volunteer attorney for the New York Civil Liberties Union and helped found the social justice committee at her previous synagogue in New York. She also has experience working in the political realm, serving in 2018 as campaign manager for former NC State General Assembly member Christy Clark. She has served on numerous boards in leadership positions, has led many fundraising and listening campaigns, and has managed significant volunteers corps. Nicole brings dedication, follow-through, an eye for detail, and a passion for social justice to this work. If you haven’t met her yet, you likely will soon, as she will be hitting the ground running, helping launch an important listening campaign in our community!
We especially want to thank the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte, whose Adaptation and Transformation Fund enabled us to make this position available.
