Staff Transitions

This summer we bid farewell to Rob Levy and Anna Freedman and welcome Deepa Domansky and Bria Dolnick.

Rob Levy spearheaded our Washington, DC activity for the past two and a half years.  He opened the office in December of 2005 and led Brit Tzedek's efforts to win over growing numbers of Congressional members to our message.  For three years he organized our National Advocacy Days conferences and worked closely with our chapters to keep up the momentum through home district advocacy meetings throughout the year.  For this and so much more we thank Rob and wish him the best as he begins graduate school later this month.

Deepa Domansky recently began as Advocacy Coordinator and Washington Liaison in our Washington, DC office where she will work with our grassroots to strengthen local advocacy activities and represent Brit Tzedek with Congress and the Administration. Prior to Brit Tzedek, Deepa worked with MoveOn.org as Regional Coordinator for districts in Florida and Virginia. She recruited and conducted capacity building training for MoveOn Council Coordinators to prepare them for media outreach and grassroots campaign events.  Deepa has her Masters degree in Political Science/International Relations from the University of Connecticut.

For the past year Deepa has served as the Chair of Brit Tzedek's Washington DC Chapter and facilitated the process of bringing the Brit Tzedek DC Chapter into the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington.

Deepa was born in southern India. Her maternal family is of Indian-Jewish descent dating centuries back.  She takes inspiration from her grandmother, a strong advocate for social justice advocate who defined holiness within Judaism as both how you relate to God and the human beings around you.

Anna Freedman has managed our national office for the past year.  Callers and visitors to our Chicago office were greeted by Anna's warm and professional manner and her willingness to be helpful with whatever task was before her.  We wish Anna well as she pursues her Master's Degree in Middle East Studies in Israel.
 

Bria Dolnick, who recently began as Brit Tzedek's new office manager, has assisted Brit Tzedek on a temporary basis since her 2003 winter break from college.  In addition to her office work, Bria is an independent audio producer for public radio and has been involved in community art education for the past several years.  She has a degree in political science from Beloit College and a certificate in Documentary Studies from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
