Devorah Brous

When Devorah is not drumming at IKAR and soaking up her sister’s Torah, she is banging out rhythm as a community organizer. She spent 15 years designing campaigns to advance human rights, community self-reliance, and environmental justice in Israel and the Palestinian Territories. In 1999, she founded BUSTAN, working with the Bedouin in the Negev, and ran it for nine years. She is the Founding Executive Director of Netiya, which empowers people to grow food on faith-based lands in L.A.
