As the Sr. Program Specialist, MHWOW (Moishe House Without Walls) Operations, Ziva supports young Jewish leaders in building community and strengthening their Jewish identities. She does everything from providing ideas to processing payments and every logistical step in between. She finds inspiration in MHWOW hosts’ redefining of what it means to be Jewish and has learned from them about the infinite number of ways to create meaningful connections to Judaism. You can always make Ziva laugh if you show her animals in party hats.
After graduating from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor’s in Education, Ziva moved to Portland, Oregon to work as the Education Administrator for Congregation Beth Israel and then moved to Charlotte, NC where she worked as a Lead Teacher for the Charlotte Jewish Preschool.
