Across the United States, Israeli NGOs and government agencies are impacting the lives of marginalized communities. Whether it is through disaster relief, post-trauma support, or everyday necessities unavailable to those communities, Israel is changing lives. We will explore some examples and learn what it is that makes these Israeli organizations leaders in their fields.

This program is co-sponsored by the Israel Committee and the Social Justice Committee.

ASSAF GRUMBERG, StandWithUs Midwest Executive Director, is an Israeli native and IDF officer. In 2010, during the Turkish Flotilla incident, Assaf witnessed a pro-flotilla anti-Israel demonstration on the Tel Aviv University campus. That event inspired him to change course from a career in finance to become a positive advocate for Israel on the global stage, joining StandWishUs in 2013. In 2015, Assaf was chosen as one of Chicago’s top 36 under 36 Jewish young Professionals.
