The Paris-born Sarah Simha Benkemoun, 34, who is full of joy and energy, works to promote the ideals of Zionism and the love of Israel in the framework of her job at Qualita – an organization dedicated to helping French-speaking immigrants to Israel.
“In France, I was an accountant, but here I wished to make a difference and to help people who come here,” says Benkemoun, who grew up in Paris but says she always loved Israel and wanted to make it her home.

She graduated from the University of Paris-Dauphine where she studied accounting and finance, volunteered as a member of the Limoud France team, and was chosen by the Schusterman Foundation to be a member of its Young Leadership Program, which connects dynamic Jewish leaders around the globe.
