When Liz Traison took an aptitude test in high school, her tests results said that she was destined to be a farmer or a rabbi. At first she was heartbroken over her prospected proletariat horizon, thinking that she had much greater aspirations than Mud and M’farshim. But she soon realized that the test knew what she hadn’t yet discovered; there is hardly a more spiritual experience than with food and nature.
Hailing from the University of Michigan, Liz recently graduated with a B.A. in History and Judaic studies. She spent 2 of her 4 college years living in Israel studying at Midreshet Lindenbaum and Hebrew University. Liz has always loved food and cooking. Her love of the outdoors began in Skeleton Lake at Camp Ramah in Canada. However, it was while apprenticing for one of Israel’s leading herbalists that Liz decided that she wanted to find a dynamic way to follow her passion to help create a more sustainable world. Liz is thrilled to be a part of the Hazon team working to create healthier and more sustainable Jewish communities, and a healthier and more sustainable world for all.
