Amy Gabriel’s interest in things Jewish began when a classmate lured her with free tacos to a student group examining ancient and contemporary Judaism and Israel. She was hooked from that first meeting, realizing the great value of studying the Jewish roots of her Christian faith. In between her trips to Israel, Amy has worked for Canada’s Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, Westminster Classical Christian Academy (Toronto), and Shalem College (Jerusalem). As a teacher, she led her students to pray for and write to persecuted Christians in the Middle East and has volunteered her time for that cause. Amy completed a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and English at Tyndale University and a Masters in Political Theory at the University of Toronto and has been a fellow at Massey College (University of Toronto), the Tikvah Fund, and the John Jay Institute. In her spare time, Amy can be found baking cheesecake, slaying dragons, or pondering existentially.
