VOLUNTEER PROFILE: TAMMY STAVINSKY

By September 6, 2019 September 10th, 2019 No Comments

Tammy Stavinsky has been an avid member of the Los Angeles committee of the World’s Jewish Museum since 2016.

“Being the daughter of a Holocaust survivor has shaped the way I look at the world.  The minute I heard about The World’s Jewish Museum, I knew that I would want to be a part of this incredible endeavor.  The WJM has the potential to positively impact so many lives by way of teaching the insurmountable amount of medical advancements and innovations we have contributed as a people, which have improved so many lives, Hopefully, the information learned will influence people to be appreciative of our efforts and hard work.  Equally important is the fact that our kids will have pride in who they are and will feel a cause for celebration for our achievements and not just feel sad about our past.  In a time when the atmosphere feels eerily familiar to pre-World War 2, and antisemitism is on the rise, the WJM is a beacon of light and hope for many generations to come.  I am very proud to be a part of the WJM team.”

Tammy is married to Amit and they live in LA with their three children.
