Our Board

Leading our growth

Our Board of Directors provides Keshet with the direction and forward momentum needed to not only grow our services but also our impact and connection to our community. Many board members have been with us from the very beginning, while many are new voices, helping us navigate the decisions needed to continue our growth now and in the future. Keshet’s board is unique with at least 51% of directors being families members of people with disabilities.
