Maya Norton · October, 2014

Welcome to my profile on Global Voices Online. I love reading, writing, traveling, and hearing people's stories, especially those whose lives are different than my own. Professionally, I work with indigenous and minority communities with an emphasis on Arab-Jewish and Israeli-Palestinian relations.

Connect on Twitter – and say hello: http://twitter.com/MayaNorton.

My original blog can be seen here: http://TheNewJew.wordpress.com. It was the first Jewish philanthropy blog on the internet and a true act of love.
