About Nina Avidar Weiner

Nina Avidar Weiner was born and grew up in a multicultural home in Alexandria Egypt. Her family moved to Israel in 1949. She became an educator and psychologist, studying in Geneva with renowned Professor Jean Piaget. Back in Israel she worked as a psychologist under Professor Reuven Feuerstein. Later, she got her Master's degree from Teacher's College, Columbia University in New York City. She met and married American lawyer Walter H. Weiner, and the couple settled in Manhattan. Weiner worked as a psychologist for underserved youth, and came to believe that the best way to improve people's lives was through a better education. In the 1970s she spent three years as an alternate representative to the United Nations for WIZO, a non-governmental organization helping women and children internationally. In 1977, with the full backing of world-renowned banker Edmond J. Safra, she co-founded the International Sephardic Education Foundation, ISEF, which grants college scholarships to deserving students in Israel's underserved communities. Mrs. Weiner continues to head ISEF today, 38 years after its creation.
