Federation group plans ‘CommUNITY: Making a World of Difference’

Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation of St. Louis invites women from throughout the Jewish community to unite and celebrate our various Jewish women’s volunteer organizations; over 25 organizations will be participating. The evening will take place Thursday, Feb. 23 at Lambert Airport- Concourse B beginning with a reception at 6:30 p.m.

Sivan Ya’ari, founder and CEO of Innovation: Africa, will share her story of how she started Innovation Africa and discuss how each of us can share an idea and change the world. While working with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on diesel energy development, she identified an opportunity for a more sustainable energy solution, developing the groundwork for Innovation: Africa. 

Sivan has received countless awards for her work , including recognition by Globes, Israel’s leading business magazine, in 2016 as one of the “40 Under 40 Most Promising Israelis,” and by Forbes Israel as one of the “50 Most Influential Women in Israel.” 

Born in Israel and raised in France, Sivan lives in Tel Aviv with her husband and three children.
