Jacob’s extensive involvement with the young leadership of Seeds of Peace began in 2007, after his first summer as a counselor at the Seeds of Peace Camp. He has worked in a variety of arenas to broaden awareness and support for the organization through numerous events and several outreach opportunities. Specifically, he spearheaded the Peace Market and Stand Up for Peace during the recession and kept those events relevant in following years. These events were annual affairs bringing young professionals in New York City together in support for Seeds of Peace.
He has also been a key advocate in creating lasting partnerships with other like-minded organizations and participants in our programs. More recently, Jacob has become a proponent of Seeds of Peace’s new United States Program, which aims to tackle issues of Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, and xenophobia.
Before becoming a real estate developer in Brooklyn, Jacob earned a Masters in Social Work from New York University.
