MEET OUR FOUNDER & BOARD
Robyn Shames, Founder & Executive Director
A lawyer by profession, and a social entrepreneur by inclination. Robyn founded Refanah in October 2014 after a Canadian relative, a cancer survivor herself, told her about a similar program in Ontario and of the joys of her healing holiday. After serving as the executive director of ICAR, the International Coalition for Agunah Rights, for over 11 years Robyn was looking for ways to do more good in the world on a daily basis, looking to increase community and social responsibility.
