Becky Keshet

Becky, an SCI Fellow, is an Israeli lawyer who has been working for many years in the towns of Sderot and Ofakim.

Her work focuses on community building, empowering disenfranchised populations through access to knowledge about their rights and the development of advocacy tools to promote policy change.

She is also the lawyer for the NGO “Rabbis for Human Rights”. She founded the southern branch of “Itach Maaki,” an organization providing help to women suffering from discrimination and lack of rights.

Becky has used her fellowship to undertake training and study visits to Northern Ireland, Canada and the US to learn about approaches to involving disadvantaged communities in social activism, with a particular emphasis on working in areas of conflict.
