Jeff Rum serves on the Executive Committee of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, and is the former Co-Chair of Federation’s Israel Engagement Committee. Jeff is also the 2016-2017 Co-Chair Designate for JFNA’s National Young Leadership Cabinet.
As 2015 Co-Chair of The Jewish Federation’s Israel Engagement Committee, Jeff Rum recounts the progression and purpose leading to Imagine Israel’s inception. “We knew this was going to be bold and different,” Jeff says of the program’s social justice focus—an approach distinctive to DC residents. “Imagine Israel reflects our community’s desire to not only visit Israel and make meaningful connections to its people, but to become more literate about the issues facing Israel and Israeli society and how we can make real, sustained impact.”
