Digital Associate and Hebrew Media Liaison

Nir joined J Street in 2015. Prior to this, he was working in Israel for the communications department in the Prime Minister’s Office, where he worked on issues related to conflict. During his service in the IDF as a medic in the West Bank, Nir treated dozens of Israeli civilians, soldiers and Palestinians. He witnessed the enormous toll the occupation takes on Israeli and Palestinian societies and has a deep notion that the conflict’s continuation endangers Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state. Nir received his Bachelor’s degree in History and International Relations from the Open University in Jerusalem. Nir currently lives in Washington, DC with his wife, Maayan.
