Aliza Goodman

The iCenter
Director of Professional Development
Aliza’s commitment to Israel was originally formed in childhood during family trips to Israel from her home in Toronto, Canada. Since then, Aliza has tried to share her passion with as many people as possible, whether it was during the numerous trips to Israel that she led for high school, college students and young adults, or through her three years working at the Hillel Foundation at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Aliza served as communications director for Genesis and BIMA at Brandeis University, two residential summer programs for Jewish high school students. Most recently, Aliza created and directed a year-long internship program for high school teens returning from summer trips to Israel aimed at developing them as leaders and peer Israel educators. Aliza holds an M.B.A. in social policy and management and an M.A. in Jewish professional leadership from Brandeis University, as well as a B.A. in psychology from the University of Western Ontario.
