Travels from Jerusalem, Israel
Topics:JNF's Work in Israel, Positively Israel
Alisa Bodner was raised in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. She was the director of the Dror for the Wounded Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports disabled veterans of the Israel Defense Forces. After participating in JNF’s Alternative Spring Break trip three times and multiple other service programs in Israel, Alisa moved to Israel where she has been living for the past four years.
Alisa’s passion for hiking and love of the Land led her to LOTEM, the leading organization in Israel dedicated to making nature accessible to people with special needs. She would never have thought that five years after her first JNF Alternative Spring Break trip, she would be back in Israel with a JNF partner organization, leading LOTEM's efforts to raise awareness for the organization throughout the US and working to bring the Land of Israel to all the people of Israel.
In her free time, Alisa likes to travel the Land of Israel by foot. She is also pursuing a Masters in Biblical Jewish History from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where she currently resides.
