Debbie Moed begins her term as President of AMIT having already served in various leadership roles during her nearly 30 years of involvement in AMIT.
She most recently was the Vice President of Financial Resource Development. In addition, Debbie has served as Vice President of the Israel Programming and was the inaugural Chair of the New Generation Board, founded in 2003. This group of dynamic young women changed the face of AMIT, and was the launching pad for many of AMIT’s current leaders.
Debbie currently is a member of the Midreshet AMIT Advisory Board, and has served on the Constitution and Strategic Planning Committees. She takes great pleasure and pride in mentoring and working with members of the Young Leadership and AFLI (AMIT Future Leadership Initiative) Boards.
In 1987, when Debbie was a new mother and resident of Englewood, NJ, she became a member of the Shalva Chai Chapter and rose to be Chapter Co-President, assuming a seat on the National Board of Directors
Beginning with her grandmother Molly, who was a longtime member of Mizrachi Women, Debbie hails from a family that has been active in AMIT for three generations. These women have served as strong role models for her throughout her non-profit career. In a sign of the times, and as a reflection of today’s AMIT, Debbie is happy to report that the men in her family of all ages are active members of AMIT as well.
In addition to her positions in AMIT, Debbie has served in various capacities at the Moriah School, the Frisch School and on the Executive Board of her synagogue, Congregation Ahavath Torah.
Since her freshman year of college, Debbie has worked at Sotheby’s, where she is responsible for bidding on behalf of clients from around the globe, as well as mentoring new bidders.
Debbie has a BA in Fine Arts from New York University, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Debbie lives with her husband Sam, head of Corporate Strategy at Bristol Myers Squibb. Sam is an active volunteer and passionate about Jewish education. They have three sons, Eric, Jonathan and David.
