Sigal Kanotopsky, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Regional Director Northeast, shares the story of her and her family's journey to Israel from Sudan.

Prior to joining The Jewish Agency, Kanotopsky worked to change perceptions of Ethiopian Israelis, who were often viewed as “the other” in Israeli society, through employment and media. In 2018, she was selected as one of Israel’s 50 most socially influential leaders by the Hebrew-language daily Yediot Achronot. She hopes to bring that message to Israel and the United States, conveying that “we are all pieces of the same puzzle.”
