Nir is a young activist from Jerusalem, whose life is inseparably intertwined with the city’s dynamic flow. Much has changed since Nir’s family arrived here during the 18th century, yet it appears that, like Jerusalem stone itself, Nir and his fellow Yerushalmim are here to stay. Together with his wife, Nir lives and volunteers in Kiryat Yovel as part of a small community called Rimon. Rimon has become a test case for alternative Israeli community life, a life based on pluralism, Jewish renewal, and collaborative action. In 2012, Nir was elected to the board of Yuvalim, a community council of six neighborhoods serving some 50,000 residents. Until recently, Nir served as the acting chairman of the community administration and chairman of its finance committee, and volunteers in various projects related to urban renewal, Orthodox-secular dialogue, Arab-Jewish cooperation, and Jewish education. After several years in the private sector, Nir recently took a position as Digital Leader for the Israeli Ministry of Health, with responsibility for planning and implementation of a national program to upgrade all digital services and infra-structures in the Israeli health system.
