From the start, Alisa Robbins Doctoroff brought to Moving Traditions a deep commitment to Jewish education and to excellence. Her board service helped shape Moving Traditions’ focus on immersive Jewish experiences, on high quality training of Jewish educators, and on the pursuit of personal meaning in Jewish life. With Alisa’s strategic input, Moving Traditions expanded its offerings from Rosh Hodesh, a group for teen girls, to a continuum of programs for Jewish teens of all genders from 6th grade through high school, called the “Pathway to Flourishing Teens.”
Alisa’s impact extends well beyond her role at Moving Traditions. A past president of the UJA-Federation of New York, the Abraham Joshua Heschel School and Congregation Or Zarua, Alisa currently serves on the boards of the Jim Joseph Foundation, the Jewish Theological Seminary, Hadar, and Montefiore Medical Center.
While Alisa is not one to seek the limelight, she nonetheless generously shoulders leadership out of her passion for creating vibrant Jewish community. So, when we asked Alisa to be our 2019 honoree, of course she said “yes.”
Alisa lives in New York City with her husband, Dan, and they are the proud parents of Jacob, Ariel, and Jenna.
Join us on Wednesday, May 15, 2019/10 Iyar 5779 at Congregation Rodeph Sholom to honor Alisa.
