DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMMING
Jessica Zagha found her passion for event planning while still in high school putting together fundraising events for organizations in her local community and social events for her friends. Professionally she began her career in the private sector as a planning assistant and junior planner, working on wedding celebrations, bar & bat missvas, and birthday celebrations in both Los Angeles and New York. With a background in special event planning and coordination in the private sector, Jessica joined the Edmond J. Safra Synagogue team in 2014 as an opportunity to use her creative skills to benefit the community she loves. The unity and beauty of the Sephardic Community in New York was one of the main reasons she moved across the country. She is known for her careful attention to detail and resourceful adeptness which are evident in the events and programs she arranges for our community. Jessica was born and raised in Los Angeles and has a BA in Marketing from Hofstra University, NY.
