Welcome to the Masa Israel family, Meara Razon Ashtivker

Meara joins us from the hi-tech sector, where she  served as C.O.O. at Boomset, an innovative event-tech company, managing sales and marketing and spearheading global partnerships. Prior to joining Boomset, Meara held the position of V.P. of community outreach for Jspace.com where she created and executed a marketing plan, as well as planned and produced mass-attended events.

 

True to our mission, Meara has lived it like a local,  having spent significant time living, working and studying in Israel. After receiving her B.A. from the University of Hartford, she was selected to participate in the Otzma program. In the years following, she moved to Miami to work with Young Judaea and returned to Israel to work for the Jewish Agency for Israel. Meara received an M.A. in non-profit management from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem while working for Beit Hatfutsot.

 

Meara served as the board chair for Dor Chadash and sat on the board of directors of the American Zionist Movement and the Moatza in New York.

 

In her new position as Masa Israel’s North American COO, where she will be managing the national recruitment and marketing efforts in the US.

She plans on expanding her vast global and local partner network, industry insight and international know-how to continue to bring an increasing number of young Jews to Israel in order to impact the futures of both.

 

We wish her, and us, much success! Welcome to the Masa Israel family, Meara.
