Tamar Leveson

Koret is an organization that has a positive impact on the Jewish and cultural Bay Area institutions that raised me. It feels good to be giving back and knowing that our work is creating opportunities for those institutions to materially impact Bay Area lives for the better.

Program Assistant

Tamar joined the Koret Foundation in 2019 as a program assistant supporting Koret’s Bay Area community grantmaking portfolio. Prior to joining Koret, Tamar applied her passion for writing as an editorial assistant for an art and design magazine. She graduated from University of Washington with a B.A. in English literature and a minor in music, where she was an active member of campus Jewish organizations and committee chair at UW Hillel. She is excited that Koret’s grants portfolio includes so many of her interests and past experiences – arts, music, culture, and Jewish community. Tamar grew up in the South Bay and Israel, and now lives in Berkeley. She spends her free time reading and playing music.
