In January 2020 B’nai B’rith Housing welcomed Elijah Plymesser as Director of Community Engagement. Elijah has been working on issues relating to neighborhood revitalization and public involvement for the past eight years in and around the Boston-area. He previously held positions with Smart Growth America, Howard Stein Hudson, and The Neighborhood Developers. An avid paddler and budding sailor, you can find him on the Charles, Mystic, or Neponset rivers most sunny weekends!
Elijah attended undergraduate studies at nearby Brandeis University, majoring in International Relations and Middle East Studies. Following graduation in 2010 he moved to Israel for graduate studies in Politics & Government at Ben-Gurion University. He holds graduate certificates from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and Boston University’s Questrom School of Management and is a resident of Somerville, MA.
