Josef Palermo

30s Engagement Director

As GatherDC’s 30s Engagement Director, Josef leads Gather’s efforts to connect hundreds of 30-somethings across the DC area to each other, to Jewish opportunities, and to a meaningful adult Jewish identity. He spends his days meeting new folks over coffee, coming up with creative contemporary connections to ancient Jewish concepts, and collaborating with other organizations in the community to make intentional spaces and innovative experiences available for Jewish (and “Jew-curious”) folks in their 30s.

Outside of GatherDC, you’ll likely find Josef at the park with a good book, wandering around an art museum, checking out a new play, or on a scooter zipping across town.
