Want to go to Israel? Then Get There!

For Alex Wineman, deciding to go back to Israel was never a question of yes or no. It was a question of when.

Inspiring Leadership

If ever you wonder what inspires leadership at Jewish Federation, ask Randi Sakwa. An energetic and highly motivated volunteer since her early days with Federation’s TOV Volunteer Network, Randi now serves on the Boards of Federation and its Women’s Philanthropy. Her heart in Israel – and a frequent visitor there with family and friends closely tied to Michigan’s Partnership Region of the Central Galilee - Randi is fully committed to her work as Co-chair of the Parternship2Gether Steering Committee and its programming, now celebrating 25 years of fellowship and accomplishment. Beyond her service to Federation, Randi is Vice President of the West Bloomfield Board of Education and a member of the Boards of JCRC/AJC and Hillel of Metro Detroit. Additionally, she is a participant in the prestigious Shalom Hartman Detroit Leadership Program and a Graduate Fellow of the Legacy Heritage OnBoard Detroit Cohort (2019).

Life Coach

So far, so good . . . Michigan winters and Detroit drivers haven’t bothered Tomer Moked, not a bit. “Driving in Michigan is a little like driving in Israel,” he says, “Everyone is in a rush, but they know where they want to go.” In his previous role as Assistant Director at Tamarack Camps, as many know him, Tomer was never one to rush into a decision. And he knew with certainty where he was going, moving from Israel to Michigan into the heart of the Detroit Jewish community. Leaving the house he owns in Beit Arye and the business he’s established in Tel Aviv - Tomer maintains that he’s found “a dream come true” in his new position as Federation’s Director of NEXTGen Detroit.
