the Albright Appoints New Communications Director

AUG. 17, 2015

Dorot Director Matthew J. Adams, with the support of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees, is pleased to announce the creation of a new position at the Albright in anticipation of the up-coming 2015-16 academic year. The new Communications Director, Sarah Fairman, will aim to centralize all media coming in and out of the Albright and strengthen the institute’s connections to our fellows, alumni, and supporters, as well as with local and foreign institutions working in similar fields. Priorities for the position include the development of digital content, alumni and donor outreach, and allowing the Albright’s relationships to flourish and evolve.

Sarah is an American with a deep interest in the region, having lived in Jerusalem for over seven years. She hopes to bring to the new position her nuanced understanding of the Albright’s location and role and her commitment to all sectors of the community.

The new position is part of Dr. Adams’ vision for the future of the Albright: “This is a big step in modernizing the face of the institute, and I’m really thrilled to have Sarah take on this challenge. She brings a skill-set that is well-suited to the task and the energy needed to make it succeed.”
