Adam Pollack wakes up every day asking himself how he can bring meaning and purpose to the world. He sees 18Doors’ mission as the answer to that call by equipping interfaith families and couples with the knowledge and resources to make Jewish choices. Adam brings a wealth of experience in philanthropy, organizational development, Jewish education, and young adult engagement. He firmly believes talented people, when gathered and properly supported, can do transformational work. He’s grateful to work alongside talented colleagues dedicated to a shared vision of a more inclusive community that reflects our diversity. 

In his spare time, Adam can be found running trails across the San Francisco Bay Area, kayaking, and hanging out with his husband, Nathan, and their dog, Stewie.
