Host, "The A List with Alison Lebovitz," PBS
Alison Goldstein Lebovitz has never been at a loss for words, and fortunately she’s been able to make a living off her gift for gab. As a professional speaker, she combines her penchant for humor with her unique gift for storytelling to deliver inspiring and motivational messages about family, tikkun olam, and the power of Jewish community across North America. She is also the host of The A List with Alison Lebovitz, a weekly television series for PBS, and co-hosts a weekly podcast with her sister called Sis & Tell. As past co-chair of National Young Leadership for the Jewish Federations of North America, Alison has seen the impact of Jewish Federation’s work all over the world, and has been moved to help others realize the power and responsibility we all have to make our world a better place. This calling is also why, in 2007, she became co-founder and president of One Clip at a Time, a nonprofit inspired by the Paper Clips Project started in Whitwell, Tennessee, that helps teachers empower students to be stakeholders in the world they live. Driven by her community spirit, faith and insomnia, Alison serves on numerous local and national nonprofit boards, and in 2015 she was appointed by Governor Bill Haslam to serve on the Tennessee Holocaust Commission. Alison graduated with honors from Brandeis University and holds a master’s degree in radio/television/film from Northwestern University. She and her husband, Alan, live in Chattanooga, TN, and have three sons, Arthur, Abe and Levi.
