As a professional lawyer, Shlomit previously worked in commercial litigation in one of the country’s largest law firms. She chose to join the AEJ out of a genuine connection with our organization’s mission and a desire to change policies impacting the Ethiopian Israeli community. She believes in legislation reform and advocacy work, as well as collaboration with people and organizations for social change.
The skills Shlomit acquired as a lawyer will especially assist AEJ in achieving these goals.
