Rivka Kidron is the co-founder of Passages and a member of its Board of Directors. Rivka’s inspiration and passion for establishing Passages was born out of her role as Advisor for Diaspora and Christian Affairs to Prime Minister Netanyahu, where she managed key relationships with global Jewish and Christian leaders.

Passages is the only program of its kind that brings thousands of young Christian leaders to Israel every year to discover the deep roots of their faith, engage with modern-day Israel and develop the leadership skills necessary to make a meaningful impact on their campuses and communities. Since its inception in 2015, Passages trips have inspired and educated thousands of Christian students from hundreds of colleges and universities with its wide-ranging leadership development and alumni engagement programs.

Prior to joining the Prime Minister’s office, Rivka spent several years in the private sector working in the venture capital and high tech industries. Leveraging her expertise and connections with Israel’s top political and business leadership, Rivka also runs a firm that is known for creating exclusive, content-driven Israel travel programs for organizations, foundations, government, investors and business leaders from around the globe.

Rivka was born in New York and made Aliyah to Israel as a child. She holds a B.A. in Economics and M.A. in Public Management from Bar Ilan University.
