Or Yochai Taylor

Associate Director

Mid-Atlantic and Southeast Coordinator (based in Washington, D.C.)

Growing up in northern California, Or began advocating for Israel through a number of community and educational projects. He was a member of the modern orthodox synagogue in Sacramento that was firebombed in 1999. His understanding of the subject grew through the Civitas Political Science Academy, the David Project, and volunteer work with numerous campaigns, as well as the Jewish Federation. Or went on to intern at the California Governor’s Office before accepting a nomination to the United States Military Academy at West Point. There, he was a part of Hillel, the Jewish Chapel Choir, and received ethics training from Israeli military commanders.

After two years at West Point, Or transferred, earning honors in Political Science and International Relations at CUNY-Hunter College. While at Hunter, Or personally witnessed slanderous SJP activities and demonstrations against Israel, as well as personal anti-Semitic attacks.
