Sarah Bard, Jewish outreach director for Clinton campaign, moving to Israel


(JTA) — Sarah Bard, the Jewish outreach director for the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, is moving to Israel.

Bard, 36, was scheduled to move by next week, she told JTA last month. Her aliyah, to be with her boyfriend, had been planned before the presidential election campaign.

Bard visited Israel in May to participate in a Clinton fundraiser in Tel Aviv.

She also worked on Clinton’s 2008 Democratic primary campaign, losing to Barack Obama. Bard then worked on Obama’s winning presidential campaign.
