Rebecca Forgasz | Vice President

Rebecca has over two decades’ experience working in leadership and education-related roles in the Melbourne Jewish community. For almost ten years, she was Director & CEO of the Jewish Museum of Australia, where she led the Museum through a decade of significant organisational development and creative regeneration. She is currently an Associate Professor (Practice) at Monash University, where she serves as Director of the Monash Intercultural Lab and as a Project Fellow on an initiative to develop a creative precinct at the University’s Caulfield campus. In 2018, Rebecca was awakened to the urgency and gravity of the climate crisis. Determined to leverage her years of experience in the Jewish community, she co-founded the Jewish Climate Network to connect fellow community members to the significant risks posed by our collapsing climate and inspire them to take effective action.
