Alli Rys

IACT Coordinator of Israel Engagement

Alli is in charge of all things Birthright and has a true passion for creating meaningful experiences for students, particularly around Israel. She grew up in Pinckney, Michigan, where she was raised to feel a passion for helping others, and then graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a general studies degree, concentrating in disability studies, elementary curriculum, gender, communications, and leadership. Her first trip to Israel was through the Taglit Birthright Israel program, and during her ten day experience she gained new friendships and memories. Her trip inspired her to participate in Career Israel, an internship placement program, which matched her with The Jaffa Institute and provided her with the opportunity to create a new reality for underprivileged Israeli children.


Alli's dream is to help others create their own meaningful experiences and stories through Israel, building Jewish solidarity worldwide and inspiring confident leaders. Yalla, and go Blue Hens!
