Executive Director – Micha K. Ben David
Micha K. Ben David was born and raised in Jerusalem. He has been involved in community leadership and organizing from a very young age as a founder of three Israeli Scouts centers. After his military service he founded Breaking the Silence, an organization of Israeli veterans speaking out about the occupation of Palestinian territories. Later he founded Grassroots Jerusalem, a platform for Palestinian community organizing.
He is an Artist and a Writer, he provides political analysis about Jerusalem to politicians and academics, but most of all he dedicates his time to consulting grassroots community organizations on strategic development plans. He is thrilled to get to know the magic of the mountains and the communities they host, and is very excited to be working at the Old Gallery!
