Outreach and Programming Coordinator, Just Vision

“When it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, you can either follow the news and listen to the leaders and lose hope, or you can look to the people working on the ground and be lifted up by their courage, creativity and resilience. I believe in the work we do at Just Vision because it makes it possible to look to those people.”
Outreach and Programming Coordinator

Nadav is the Outreach and Media Associate at Just Vision, coordinating and managing screenings, workshops and other events throughout the US and internationally, and serving as a liaison to communities and educators who wish to learn more about Just Vision’s work.

Nadav grew up in Israel, and received his B.A. with honors from Harvard University after completing his service in the Israeli Army. At Harvard, his studies focused on the intersection between politics and popular culture. He wrote his senior thesis on contemporary Israeli cinema, and the ways in which it reflects trends in modern Israeli society. During this time, Nadav also produced a short documentary film, Comfort Food,which explored the role of hummus in the context of the Israeli-Arab conflict.

Nadav has also been involved extensively in conflict resolution efforts and human rights work. He is an active graduate of Seeds of Peace, an organization devoted to bringing together youth from areas of conflict, and has organized and participated in multiple joint Israeli-Palestinian activities in Israel and in the West Bank. In the summer of 2008, he received a grant from Harvard University to intern as a researcher and fieldworker with Yesh Din, an Israeli human rights organization that assists Palestinians in ensuring that the rule of law is maintained by the Israeli authorities in the West Bank. He has also edited and written sections for several travel guidebooks from the Let’s Go series, including the historical, political and cultural introductions in Let’s Go: Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
