DEVORA FINE
Deputy Director

devora@clubz.org

​Devora joined Club Z team in 2017 to help bring voices of Millennials to the organization. Feeling strongly about her aspirations of being personally involved in the Zionist story, Devora wanted more than a Silicon Valley career in tech. She wanted to do work that ensured the relevance of Zionism to the new generation of leaders.

Growing up in the South Bay Jewish Community, she had many opportunities to visit and explore Israel. She began her personal Zionist Journey by participating in The March of the Living her Junior year of High School. Post High School she moved to Israel for a year to volunteer with Young Judaea. Devora has completed the David Project Advocacy training programing and was an active member of the Pro-Israel community in college, working to find solutions to combating anti-Israel sentiment on campus.
