Aviva Klompas has made a name for herself as a leading educator, skilled communicator, and innovative strategist.
In 2021, Aviva co-founded Boundless, a nonprofit reimaging Israel education across North America. Before leaping into social entrepreneurship, Aviva served as the Director of Speechwriting for Israel’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York City, as Associate Vice President of Israel and Global Jewish Citizenship at Combined Jewish Philanthropies, and as a Senior Policy Advisor in the Ontario Government supporting efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in Canada.
Aviva’s memoir, Speaking for Israel, reflects on her time as a speechwriter and offers readers an honest and entertaining insight into the world of Israeli diplomacy. Her articles have appeared in the pages of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy, The Jerusalem Post, and other international publications.
Aviva holds a Masters of Public and Non-Profit Management and Policy from New York University and is an avid fan of travelling, giraffes, and bonfire guitar gatherings.
