Our monthly newsletter is a critical tool for the museum in building our public image and communicating with our supporters. As the editor, Elana has developed the newsletter into a highly-regarded publication that regularly receives praise for its writing, design and content. Even more impressively, the newsletter she produces actively engages its readers as is evidenced by "open and click" rates, and has caused an increase in donations to the museum. I am often surprised in fact by how closely our recipients follow our updates and this is in no small part to the wonderful work that Elana does.
"Over the nearly six years that Elana has worked with Beit Hatfutsot her knowledge and skills in the area of marketing communications have helped produce our signature quality content. She is a talented writer. a consummate professional, and a pleasure to work with.
