Mikhael Manekin is an Israeli-American orthodox activist based in Jerusalem. He serves as the Israel Director of The Alliance for Israel’s Future, a consortium of donors and organizations focused on building new, progressive political leadership in Israel. Through the Alliance, Mikhael established the Shutafut fellowship, which brings together up-and-coming progressive leaders from diverse backgrounds for a year-long fellowship to gain political analysis and skills. Shutafut is rapidly becoming a catalyst for political change on the municipal and national levels. Prior, Manekin served as Director of Molad, a nonpartisan progressive think tank based in Jerusalem, and as Director of Breaking the Silence. Mikhael also co-founded Mahapach, a progressive caucus operating within the Labor Party. He has been published in major publications like Foreign Policy, Haaretz, and Foreign Affairs. He is expecting his first book to be released in 2020. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife and three children.
