Stacey Dorenfeld of Los Angeles, CA, is living a life that she loves due to the people and experiences she has been blessed with. She gives much of her energy to repairing the world, and feels that she is a better person because of Hadassah.
While still a fairly new Life Member, Stacey has already immersed herself in Hadassah. She represented Hadassah Southern California by attending the Jewish Public Affairs Committee (JPAC) conference in Sacramento for two consecutive years. She has led seven women to their own Day on the Hill session and participated in Day in the District programs. She serves as the Hadassah Advocacy Chair in California, and the Editor of a quarterly newsletter for her local group, B'yachad. Recently, Stacey was chosen as a Hadassah Leadership Fellow, where she journeyed to Poland and Israel with 15 other women. The experience not only moved her, but also brought a greater passion and understanding of her responsibility as a Jewish woman to Israel, Zionism, and Hadassah.
Throughout her life, Stacey has been involved with a variety of Jewish organizations and Jewish outreach programs. She is an active member of the Jewish Women’s Initiative (JWI) and AIPAC (American Israel Political Action Committee).
Stacey received her B.A. in communications from California State University, Northridge and has been involved in several business endeavors including, but not limited to, interior design, developing an original line of motivational consumer products, jewelry, and extensive writing, both professionally and for pleasure. She currently works as the Operations Manager for a family law firm, is a published author of three books, and is the face behind the lifestyle blog, StaceyInsideOut.com.
Stacey has two daughters-- both members of Hadassah and involved with AIPAC, Hillel and Chabad; and a son studying to be a firefighter. In her spare time, she will be most likely be on a hike, at the beach, or in a game of Mahjong with her friends.
