Zahava Moerdler is the Sylvia Wattenberg Human Rights Fellow on the Antisemitism and Extremism team in the New York office. She focuses on antisemitism and bigotry in the United States and Europe as well as the intersection of extremism and antisemitism.
During law school, Zahava was a Crowley scholar, focusing on gender justice in Burma. She was also a student in the International Human Rights Clinic and traveled to Mauritius to conduct a training for sex worker advocates on using international human rights mechanisms to enforce their rights. She also interned with the Open Society Justice Initiative and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, as well as on the Antisemitism and Extremism team at Human Rights First. Zahava was a Notes and Articles editor for the Fordham International Law Journal, where she managed eight staffers. She authored two Notes for publication in the Journal: the first argues that the Holocaust restitution processes should be used as a rubric for victims of other mass human rights abuses, and the second argues that antisemitism should be understood as a form of racism given international legal doctrine and jurisprudence.
Zahava received a J.D., cum laude, from Fordham University School of Law. She holds a bachelor's degree in history from Barnard College. Zahava speaks Hebrew and Russian.
