Welcome to Our New Shlicha, Liat Lisha

Renee Eder on Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Since 2006, we have been fortunate to host seven creative and passionate shlichim, who connected Israel to our community by spearheading programs, leading meaningful discussions, and engaging with local synagogues.
 
This year, we are thrilled to welcome Liat Lisha, who will continue the important work of our shlichim by working at the J, with area synagogues, Jewish agencies/organizations, and at other locations throughout Northern Virginia.
 
Here’s a brief bio so you can get to know her better:

Liat was born and raised in Ashdod, Israel to a family of Moroccan descent. Prior to becoming a shlicha, she worked in Tel Aviv, as a Web Fraud Content Analyst for IBM, and also worked for the non-profit SheCodes, a group that aims to bring gender equality to the Israeli hi-tech industry. Liat served as an Intelligence Analyst in the IDF for three years, and was the head of an intelligence team of 12 soldiers.
 
As a teen, Liat was chosen by the Israeli Ministry of Education to take part in a summer program called Seeds of Peace, where she brought together Israeli, Palestinian, American, Egyptian, and Jordanian teens to have an open dialogue about tolerance and acceptance. She continues to work with this group as a project manager.
 
Liat loves to be physically active, and enjoys meeting with people to discuss Israeli politics, social issues, tech, the Israeli economy, and fashion. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and trying new recipes, music, and basketball.
