Jeff Narod, M.S., M.H.S.A.
IACT/Israel Outreach Coordinator
Alyssa is a native of Long Island, New York. After graduating from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania with a sociology and criminal justice degree, Alyssa hopped on the next plane ride to Israel to begin her year teaching English on her Masa program. She is a self proclaimed Zionist and falafel fanatic. Besides spending her time in Israel impressing the Israeli youth with her less than subpar Hebrew skills, she became increasingly involved in Middle East politics and Israel advocacy. She spent time learning how to be an effective Birthright Israel Staff member as she was chosen to be a part of the Birthright Israel Fellows Program. Alyssa has a passion for Israel and spends her time expanding her knowledge of her favorite country along with searching for her connection to Judaism and the cultural aspects that surround it. She is excited to move to Boston for this new chapter of her life and pursue something she is so passionate about. If you catch Alyssa back in Boston not vacationing in Israel, she’s probably sitting in a cozy bookshop drinking a chai tea latte watching The Office reruns. She can’t wait to share her enthusiasm and passion with the students of Clark University.
