Shelley works as a research coordinator at the JGH Lab of Dr. Howard Chertkow, which focuses on neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. For 18 years she was involved in the MEA Lectureship on the Environment, established in memory of her late mother Mona E. Adilman, a devoted writer and ecologist. Through the guidance of Rabbi Orenstein and Emily Litvack she was able to steer the lectureship into environmental activities that would engage youth in the Jewish community (JELT – Jewish Eco Leadership Training). She continues to volunteer for TEVA Québec whose mission is to promote Jewish environmental education and community involvement with the broader environmental movement. Shelley is very pleased to join the Genvironment team in an advisory capacity. In her view Genvironment embodies the vision and style of programming which she has always believed could be possible – inspiring and engaging youth to reconnect to nature and providing them with the tools to make real changes toward a more sustainable world.
