Meet Mitch!

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

We welcome Mitch Liebeskind:

Hello all,

My name is Mitch Liebeskind and I am the new Program and Outreach Coordinator here at Yachad. I am excited to meet many of you and create real change in the city I was born in and in the lives of our homeowners.

From a young age the synagogue congregation I grew up, placed me on a path of, as Rabbi Heschel said, “praying with my feet.” Yachad is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to pray with our feet, come together to better communities in our city, and so many lives within it. Through the work of our partners, volunteers, community members, and homeowners, Yachad is able to move forward to the better world we all know is out there. I am excited to take the next steps with you.

I am a graduate of The University of Maryland and came to Yachad from the BBYO world. I love history, baseball, exploring new restaurants, and city life. When we meet, please let me know where you think the turning point was of World War I, why you think the DH has no place in the game, or where your favorite tacos are in the city. And don’t worry I don’t wear a tuxedo and bow tie when I paint.

I can be reached at 202.296.8563 or mitch@yachad-dc.org.
