I made Aliyah to Israel in 1977 and I'm a member of Kibbutz Gvulot since 1980. I'm married to Anna Ratzar and a father of three daughters. In my current capacity I'm the Secretary General of the World Union of Meretz, a job I held since 2012. I was also the Head of the Latin America Desk of Hashomer movement a job I held from 1997-2015.

Prior to my executive positions I  was the Hashomer Hatzair envoy to Chile during the Allende dictatorship and founded Hashomer Hatazair Ken in Santa Fe Argentina. In addition, I ran the Zionist Congress elections in 1987 in Litoral.

The World Union of Meretz and Hashomer Hatzair movement are my life's work. I held my many positions, including the World Union of Meretz Secretary General,until 2015, voluntarily as part of my contribution to the Israeli and Jewish left and a wish not to leave Judaism and Zionism solely in the hands of the right and religious streams.
