Masa Israel Journey Names New North American Director

July 2, 2014

David B. Miller, of Teaneck, New Jersey, was recently named Director of Masa Israel Journey North America. 

Miller comes to Masa Israel after working at Yeshiva University for six years, the past three of which he served as Chief Operations Officer in the Office of Admissions, during which time undergraduate admissions increased by 16%.


Originally from Montreal, Canada, Miller studied business administration, political science, and theater at McGill and Concordia University, and spent a year in Israel learning at Yeshivat Kerem B’Yavne.


Miller has worked in management, marketing, and operations in both the nonprofit and for-profit world, and is charged with growing the number of North American young adults spending 5-12 months in Israel on long-term programs. He will work alongside Masa Israel’s recently-appointed CEO, Liran Avisar Ben-Horin, who previously served as the Chief of Staff of the Director General of the Prime Minister’s Office.


Founded in 2004 as a joint project of the Government of Israel and The Jewish Agency for Israel, Masa Israel celebrated its 10-year anniversary this year and continues to bring more than 10,000 young adults from around the world on immersive, meaningful programs in Israel annually.


Miller lives in Teaneck, New Jersey with his wife Elissa, a pre-school teacher at Yeshivat Noam, and their three children.
