Handel Among Hadassah’s 2024 ‘18 Voices for Israel’

Jennifer Handel is the Director of Israel Engagement for the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta.

Hadassah Greater Atlanta announces that Jennifer Handel, Director of Israel Engagement for the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, has been named to the list of Hadassah’s 2024 “18 Voices for Israel.”

Handel was recently recognized as one of Atlanta’s “Jewish 40 Under 40” and has had the privilege of speaking on various panels related to antisemitism and Zionism. Participating in Birthright Israel in 2010 changed the course of Jenn’s personal and professional life.

National Hadassah’s 2024 Annual List (http://www.Hadassah.org/18women) consists of 18 American Zionist women; both Jews and non-Jews; American-born women, American immigrants and Americans who have made Aliyah.

“These special women will help see us through the current crisis and shape the future of Zionism and Israel. They have made Zionism an integral part of their personal and professional lives,” stated Simone Wilker, Zionist Affairs Chair for Hadassah Greater Atlanta.

“Zionist women here in the United States are a strong force for Israel today,” explains Hadassah Greater Atlanta President Nancy Schwartz.

Handel is in great company among these 18 women. From TV star Debra Messing, who is executive-producing “Primal Fear,” a documentary about the post-Oct. 7 eruption in antisemitism, to Hadassah Zionism-education star Diana Diner, from Christian Zionist Destiny Albritton, to LGBTQ+ progressive Zionist, Toby Klein, from Black Jewish poet/digital content creator Tova Ricardo to constitutional scholar Sam von Ende – these women and the others on the 2024 list represent the diversity of Zionism today.
