Until her Aliyah to Israel this past summer, Jessica Felber was the founding Executive Director of the DOREINU movement and a doctoral student at UCLA, Department of Near Eastern Languages & Cultures, with a special emphasis on Israel Studies. As an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, Jessica was the president of Tikvah Students for Israel, a Hasbara Fellow and a StandWithUs Emerson Fellow. Following her graduation, she worked as the California Campus Coordinator for Hasbara Fellowships and then as the West Coast Director of Jerusalem U. While completing her Masters degree at UCLA, Jessica created her own non-profit organization, DOREINU, aimed at inculcating Jewish young adults in the United States with a strong sense of Jewish identity and national consciousness. Following her recent move to Israel, she has joined the leadership of LAVI while continuing her doctorate at Ben-Gurion University.
