Abby Israel

Abby comes to us from Yarmouth, Maine where her family still lives. She comes to Tivnu with a strong passion for social justice, especially about food and the environment. Abby graduated from Dickinson College with a B.A. in International Studies in 2020 and found her way into working at the intersection of Judaism and social justice by joining the Avodah Jewish Service Corps in New York, where she worked for Footsteps as the Community Engagement Program Associate. She discovered that she loved mentoring and working with youth and young adults through her social justice work.

When she’s not working, you can find Abby enjoying a good novel, horseback riding, or refining her tarot skills. She couldn’t be more excited to be on Tivnu’s staff this year!
