Changes are afoot at Makom – the Jewish Agency’s Israel Education Lab.

Abi Dauber Sterne, Hillel International’s vice president for Jewish education, has been named the new director.

Jonny Ariel, Makom’s founding executive director, will continue his work with Makom part-time as a thought leader and educator. Robbie Gringras, Makom’s long-time creative director, will transition to working as lead educator on a number of Makom projects in a consulting role.
