JumpSpark is pleased to announce Nathan Brodsky will lead JumpSpark as our new Director.
As a kid growing up in Sarasota, Florida, I often looked at the copy of The Jewish Book of Why that was prominently displayed in the living room, and I learned at the young age about the importance of asking questions. Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso says, “At the heart of what it means to be a Jew is to ask questions.” I love connecting with new people by asking open ended questions to learn about their lives.
I am honored to start my new role as Director of JumpSpark, and I plan to often reference the Jewish value of asking questions. Through this, I plan to deepen my understanding of the Atlanta Jewish teen ecosystem, learn about how teens and their parents connect to Israel, and encourage creative problem solving. While we further and sustain JumpSpark’s impact, I look forward to the many questions time will bring and discovering the answers along the way.
Director of JumpSpark
Nathan Brodsky is thrilled to bring his passions for teen engagement and Israel experiences to JumpSpark as the new Director of JumpSpark. Nathan has worked as the Family Impact Manager at the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta for the past six years where he grew the PJ Library initiative by instituting new initiatives like PJ microgrants and programming for the Russian-speaking Jewish community, doubling subscription numbers, and deepening opportunities for community partnership. Originally from Sarasota, Florida, he previously worked at the boarding high school American Hebrew Academy (AHA) in Greensboro, North Carolina and was on staff at Ramah Darom for six years. Nathan is currently pursuing his MBA from Kennesaw State University and has a BA in Anthropology and BS in Psychology and Jewish Studies from Tulane University. He looks forward to connecting with you about how JumpSpark can support your teen engagement initiatives.
