Jenan Mohajir is an educator, a storyteller, a mother, and a believer in building relationships across the lines that separate us. Jenan serves as the Senior Director of Leadership at Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), where she oversees the creation and implementation of programs that invest in development of student interfaith leaders. For the last 11 years, Jenan has served as a senior staff member at IFYC and has trained hundreds of young people to be interfaith leaders who create a different story of engagement in our polarized world. She recently traveled to Jerusalem as part of a two-year course of study on Judaism, Israel, and Zionism as a member of the fourth cohort of the Shalom Hartman Institute's Muslim Leadership Initiative.

When she can, Jenan volunteers with Sirat Chicago, a neighborhood space that fosters a healthy community by supporting initiatives around service and worship, education and arts, and family life. Jenan lives on the south side of Chicago with her husband and three children.
