Marnie Fienberg

Marnie Fienberg has been on a long journey from victim to activist. Since her mother-in-law, Joyce Fienberg, was murdered at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, she has switched careers from business consulting for the Federal government, including for the Department of Homeland Security for 15 years, to focusing on social action—fighting hate and anti-Semitism at the grassroots level.

Her first project, along with partner Lauren Kline, is “2 for Seder,” encouraging Jews across the U. S. and Canada to actively invite at least two people of other faiths to their first Seder—fighting hate through first-hand experiences about Judaism.

Fienberg empowers audiences to put positive language into the national dialogue by engaging with neighbors and building bridges of support—for the good times and the bad.

This event is in partnership with The Milton “Mickey” Kramer Scholar in-Residence Fund of the Congregation Beth El Foundation’s Tidewater Together series and United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Community Relations Council.
RSVP (Required) at jewishva.org/tidewatertogether.


The Milton “Mickey” Kramer Scholar-in-Residence Fund of the Congregation Beth El Foundation’s Tidewater Together is a collaboration of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and area synagogues.
