Gusti Yehoshua-Braverman is a busy woman. I am meeting with her at the Herzl Center in Jerusalem after she kindly rearranged a previous appointment to fit me in before she embarks on yet another transatlantic hop ahead of the anniversary of the November 29, 1947, UN vote on the establishment of the State of Israel.

Braverman earns her keep as co-chair of the World Zionist Organizationā€˜s Department for Diaspora Activities. She is halfway through a five-year term, with a purview that focuses on reinforcing the Zionist identity of Jewish youth across the world and trying to keep them bonded with Israel. Braverman is proud of the fact that she is the only woman among the six publicly elected members of the WZO executive.
