Margo Wagner, ISJL Education Fellow
Margo was raised in the Rocky Mountains where she grew up shredding the slopes and being an active member of the local volunteering community. Margo has been a musician playing guitar, percussion, piano, and singing since the age of four, and has continued to enjoy her musical craft through today. Most Recently, Margo earned a bachelor’s degree in Jewish Sacred Music and a minor in Hebrew from Indiana University. Margo believes that gaining different perspectives from Jewish communities in the south will help her connect to Judaism on a unique and deeper level. As an aspiring cantor, she decided to move down south to the ISJL Education Fellowship to gain educational and professional skills before attending Cantorial school. Margo also participated in many summer camps over her lifetime including, most recently, working as a songleader at Greene Family Camp. Greene Family Camp was her first introduction to the south along with her first introduction to the ISJL. Margo is very excited to be working for the Institute of Southern Jewish Life as a first year Education Fellow and to build relationships with the Southern communities.
