Stacey R. Dorenfeld

Stacey R. Dorenfeld’s column ”I Helped Myself By Helping Others” for Next Tribe reflects how she always played it safe by never venturing outside her “comfort box.” After attending a women’s empowerment weekend in Southern California, she found the courage to venture outside of her ”comfort box” and become the person she was meant to be. Today, Stacey is currently Hadassah National Advocacy Co-Chair, responsible for training members in 25 states, serves as California Advocacy Chair, and is on the board of Hadassah Southern California.

In her column, Stacey writes about how she had to let go of who she thought she was and just allow herself to become. Stacey’s column in Next Tribe is one of an ongoing series of columns she contributes regularly bto Thrive Global and The Times of Israel.
