Ilana Peleg

Director of External Relations, Givat Haviva Joint Center and Art Gallery

From Harish

Formerly a spokesperson for the Zomet party, Ms. Peleg initiated social legislation that was eventually implemented and had a significant impact both socially and economically on several sectors of society; she led the TANDUE jewelry company as CEO; and served as VP of Sales at Zoho CRM Corporation.

In the wake of the events of May 2021, Ms. Peleg took it upon herself to organize creative art sessions for Jewish and Arab youth from different parts of Israel, including Ramla, Lod, Acre, and other areas. During these sessions, the participants used art as a means of communication and collaborated to promote nonviolent dialogue. Ms. Peleg forms connections in refugee frameworks worldwide by utilizing art as a collaborative language.

She holds a master’s degree in economics and business administration with a specialization in business strategy from Simon Bolivar University, Caracas, Venezuela and a bachelor’s degree in advertising and public relations from Simon Bolivar University, Caracas, Venezuela.

My training introduced me to different women of different ages and positions. This exposure enriched me and contributed greatly to my understanding of human nature and my ability to apply the knowledge accumulated in the sessions. I was able to understand that behind every agenda there are people, human beings, and at the end of the day it will continue, move forward, and be realized by and for the people.
