Elana Broitman | Jewish Federation of Broward County

Elana Broitman

The Jewish Federation of North America's Top Public Policy Advocate

Elana Broitman and her family were among the tens of thousands of Jews who fled Soviet Union in the 70’s and 80’s to escape antisemitism. Initially settling in Pennsylvania and eventually spending her formative years in Texas, she became engaged in Jewish communal life thanks to the local JCC, Jewish summer camp, and BBYO. Among other things, she has staffed the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, served as a leading senator’s Senior Advisor for National Security, and as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and USAID Senior Rule of Law Advisor. Today Broitman serves as the Jewish communities’ top advocate and head of public affairs, leading our national systems work to battle antisemitism, BDS, and hate in all of its forms as well as engage all the elements of our civil society in helping support vibrant and healthy Jewish life and strong and engaged civic communities.
