I am an attorney by training and have worked both in the private sector, as a litigator in a large Wall Street law firm, and in the public sector, as a prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney's office. I have been most involved in working with vulnerable populations in Israel, focusing on immigrant absorption and economic empowerment. I currently chair the Economic Empowerment Committee at UJA Federation of New York and work closely with Haredim, Arab Israelis and Ethiopian Israelis, focusing on strategies and programs to integrate them into the Israeli economic mainstream. I also sit on the boards of UJA Federation, the Baron de Hirsch Foundation and the Good People Fund. I am married and live in Manhattan with my husband and 3 children.
