Welcome to Times Will Tell, The Times of Israel’s weekly podcast. This week we speak with Ariel Zwang, the new CEO of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
Zwang is a longtime CEO of other nonprofits, but it’s still rare for the Jewish world to see a woman at the top. We will talk about a life that broke glass ceilings and what still needs to be done for greater gender equality in Jewish organizing.
Zwang has just returned from a month-long trip to Israel, where he visited Lod and other areas of cohabitation flare-ups during the last May conflict. Also, Zwang discusses JDC’s worldwide footprint among all nations regardless of religion, its work here in Israel, and how the massive organization is trying to get more input from the next generation of leaders.
