Liza Moskowitz cares deeply about not only fostering meaningful Jewish experiences for her peers, but also empowering Jewish young adults to create their own experiences. That's the goal of her work as associate director of the  Moishe House Without Walls  program, where she manages Moishe House's organizational partnerships and provides its community builders with tons of resources. One such resource was her "Bader Seder Haggadah," which encouraged the incorporation of feminism into the Passover seder. 

The haggadah is also a prime example of Liza's dedication to empowering women and girls. She hosts Rosh Chodesh programs and is an avid volunteer and fundraiser for Girls on the Run. Similarly, Liza maintains a deep connection to her sorority, Gamma Phi Beta; during undergrad at Boston University, she was Panhellenic president and lobbied Congress on key issues for sorority communities. She later consulted professionally for Gamma Phi Beta and remains a senior alumna volunteer.
