Erin Stiebel, 31, of Southfield is an educator for Partners Detroit’s young professional division, offering Jewish educational opportunities and hosting Shabbos meals for anyone and everyone. (Let her know when you’re free for Shabbos dinner!)

In addition to having staffed Israel trips for Birthright and the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP), Erin serves as the director of NCSY GIVE, an annual volunteer-focused Israel summer program for high school girls from across North America. When she’s not teaching or running Israel trips, Erin can be found innovating in the greater Jewish community, having founded Deja Food, a joint project with Yad Ezra that collects excess Shalach Manos after Purim and distributes them to the needy, and Zechuyos.com, a website established for people to commit to taking on mitzvot in the merit of those in need of healing.

Erin, a graduate of Yeshiva University, has her MBA and masters in Jewish education and is a Wexner Fellow/Davidson Scholar. She is a NEXTGen Detroit board member, a NEXTGen Presentense Fellow and an active member of Detroit’s Orthodox community who loves her unofficial role of “matchmaker” (four married couples and counting!). She is always looking to meet more people, help more people meet and bring humor and happiness to her surroundings. Erin is married to Detroit-native, David Stiebel, and is the (very) proud mom of Alexander, Solly and Louie.
