Mariana Litvin was born in Buenos Aires in 1977, the eldest daughter of a young couple who met in Israel as volunteers during the Yom Kippur war. Since childhood, she has enjoyed Jewish communal life. She grew up surrounded by friends, two sisters and a brother. During her adolescence, she was a madricha and volunteer leader for different projects, always with the devotion to share her passion for Jewish identity. Her curiosity and varied interests led her to study anthropology. Mariana is intrigued by both the differences and similarities among a diverse range of people and cultures throughout the world. She was Director of Hillel Argentina, which enabled her to turn her passion into a career for seven years. Recently, she gave birth to her first son, Elian, infusing her with new energy and making her think about the future. Today, she is a consultant on corporate responsibility. As Director of Hillel in Buenos Aires, Mariana focused her energy on engaging young people and giving them opportunities to develop as professionals, individuals and Jews in a pluralistic way. She supported and supervised volunteer projects designed so that young people could develop their altruism, with an eye toward tikkun olam and the values of tzedek. With the support of an international network and strategic alliances with companies and other worldclass organizations, Mariana grew her organization and developed as an individual. She continues to apply her expertise in social activism to the corporate world as a consultant.
