Shoshana Kordova is a journalist, translator and editor living in Israel.

She is the style editor for the English edition of Haaretz (that’s comma kind of style, not fashion kind of style), where she had nerdy-wordy fun writing a Word of the Day column on Hebrew words and phrases that caught her fancy. (It was canceled in August 2014; read the last column here.)

Shoshana also wrote the Israelispeak and Israel Week in Review columns for Tablet Magazine and is a former contributing writer for World Jewish Digest. Her articles have been published by media outlets including Smithsonian Magazine, Motherlode (the New York Times parenting blog), Quartz, JTA, Religion News Service, Women’s Feature Service, The Jerusalem PostBeliefnet and Babble.

She has also taught journalistic translation at Beit Berl College in Israel.

Shoshana grew up in New Jersey and moved to Israel in 2001, where she lives with her husband and four daughters. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science and communication from Rutgers University and a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
