Michal Sherez Shilor is the founder and Chairwoman of “0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem” and the Interim Director of Resource Development at “aChord: Social Psychology for Social Change”.
In 2015, Michal founded the organization and Facebook platform “0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem,” which provides the unedited, unfiltered narratives of East, West, and Haredi Jerusalem in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

In addition, she has consulted for government institutions and social organizations on cultural competence. She is an advisory board member of Leichtag Foundation’s Jerusalem Model.
