The Jewish Week has an article that suggests that Birthright Israel a) add new board members who are younger and can relate to and understand the target audience, perhaps alumni who recently attended trips and b) that boards need to be properly trained and have the appropriate skill set for that particular agency. Areyvut agrees with this approach and plans to add several new board members -including a current intern (and a former intern I hope)- who are closer to our target audience and bring a unique perspective. We feel that this approach is essential and will help energize the board, enable Areyvut to face challenges and grow stronger. If you know of someone who might be appropriate please let me know.
