I hope you’ve had a great summer!
Following on from Chana Kanzen’s recent update on Ji’s leadership change, I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as Ji’s new CEO and also to tell you more about our exciting path ahead!
I’ve been COO at Ji for the past 4 years, working on all aspects of the organization, helping drive forward growth across our wide range of digital educational services for schools, teachers, children & families. In total I have over 20 years’ experience in the non-profit sector including in management, operations, fundraising, product development & sales roles.
I am deeply appreciative of this opportunity and am inspired by our many users and supporters to drive Ji forward with increased purpose and vision and to build on the strong foundations laid by my predecessor.
As you may know, over the past couple of years Ji has been developing our own in-house platform solution for Jewish education. Jigzi is that solution and will reshape the landscape for Jewish, Hebrew & Israel studies (5-11yrs).
Jigzi.org will become the hub for Joyful Jewish Learning and home to all of Ji’s much-loved activities, tools, and training, which will continue to be provided through the new platform.
Our whole team is so excited to roll out Jigzi fully to teachers, schools and families in the coming months and we’ll continue to keep you updated with all the big news and developments.
Thank you so much for your crucial support for Ji so far and I really look forward to continuing our relationship as we advance into a new era full of potential.
Thank you for all your incredible support so far,
