About the Moderator

Michelle Boorstein (@mboorstein) has been the religion reporter for the Washington Post since 2006. Michelle’s path to her dream job as religion reporter began as a kid, trying to make sense of a kosher Jewish home that had three sets of dishes: meat, milk and Chinese food. Her career included a decade of globe-trotting with the Associated Press, covering topics including domestic terrorism in the Arizona desert to Ugandan royalty and how strapped doctors in Afghanistan decide who lives and who dies.
