Jaya Reinhalter


Coordinator for US Western States and Global Programs Associate

Jaya was born and raised at Kashi, an intentional interfaith community, so interfaith approaches have been the foundation of her life and work from her earliest memories. She attended the Parliament of the World’s Religions for the first time at age 16 in 2004, and awoke to the global need for interfaith cooperation. Returning to live and work at Kashi after completing her education, Jaya applies the principles of her research on the capacity of intentional and interfaith communities to affect change in their larger societies, extending Kashi’s engagement and reach through partnerships with global spiritual, interfaith, and activist communities.
