About our CEO, Anna Kislanski


Anna Kislanski is an experienced educator and community specialist who, prior to her appointment as CEO of the Israel Reform Movement, spent the past decade as IMPJ Deputy Director General, oversaw the Congregational and Educational arms of the Reform Movement in Israel, and worked to support the growing network of Reform Congregations in Israel. Anna led and supervised the more than doubling of the IMPJ’s congregational presence which was 23 when she began in 2010, and is now 54.

Anna served as the Reform Movement’s Central Shlicha for URJ (2005-2009) and during that time was selected by The Jewish Agency for Israel as the top professional Shaliach for 2006. She also worked for the School Twinning Program with the Tel Aviv Los Angeles Partnership in Curricula Development and as the Program Director for Congregation Or Hadash in Haifa, the Reform Movement’s largest congregation in the north of Israel.

Anna’s experience in education also draws from her work at MELITZ (The Institute for Jewish-Zionist Education) as a Program Director and Facilitator, developing programs for schools, youth and educators, as a Facilitator for the MICHAEL Program, and as a Training Director at the College of Management in Israel.

Anna has degrees in Middle Eastern Studies and Educational Counseling. She lives with her husband, Arthur, and their three children in Even Yehuda, Israel and are founding members of Kehillat HaShachar – one of IMPJ’s newest congregations.
