Restless, energetic, and enterprising, Paola is constantly on the look out for new ideas. She lives in Buenos Aires with her husband and two beautiful sons.
Paola has worked for several years in different Jewish Organizations in the area of Education, Sports and Culture including many Jewish Schools and Hebraica Argentina, where she was the director of Adults and Culture department. When her children were born, she decided to work independently but collaborating on Jewish life, and that motivated her to create a social entrepreneurship.
She founded Judaic Tourism, a project whose mission is to strengthen Jewish identity through the preservation and appreciation of Jewish heritage, transforming Jewish places into interesting travel destinations and connecting travelers with history, culture, and Jewish life in Latin-america cities. The hallmark of the project is that all the guides of the Jewish Tours offered are leaded by active members of each local Jewish Community, telling their own stories of Jewish life, and also, that all places visited are worked hand by hand with local institutions, so that they can also make themselves known. The project provides information (such as Kosher food, relevant museums or monuments...) and also offer "Jewish City Tours," promoting connections between travelers and local Jewish communities. Her goal is to have travelers from around the world spend at least a day or a few hours of their vacation connecting with their Jewish roots by visiting different places where community life unfolds, wherever they may be, enjoying a new way of traveling.
A graduate of JDC’s Leatid Directores Program, she also works as an independent consultant, organizing Jewish events, seminars and gatherings across Latin America. Besides overseeing education and volunteering programs, she also assists companies with CSR initiatives.
Apart from her enterprise, she has also volunteered for a wide range of programs in the Jewish community, including Lazos, Limud, and others...
While she enjoys dancing and traveling, her true passion is meeting new people and forging new ties and connections.
