Onward Israel

Sydney coordinates the registration, implementation, and operations for all of the Theme Based Programs. As a past Onward Israel participant herself, Sydney is excited to be working for the organization to help provide the same professional growth and enriching summer experiences to our participants that she experienced.

Sydney was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio before heading to Washington, DC for college. Between her junior and senior years of college, she spent her summer as a participant of Onward Israel’s Cleveland program where she lived in Tel Aviv and worked for a local nonprofit that provided enrichment programs for underprivileged youth. Prior to joining the Onward Israel team, Sydney worked in the international legal field where she gained invaluable knowledge of the of the international political sphere before moving to New York City to start her non-profit career.

Sydney lives in New York City and spends her free time taking her chocolate lab Moose on long walks through Central Park, hanging out at the Met, eating Zuckers bagels, and cooking recipes found on Tasty Buzzfeed.
