OSNAT FOX, JEWISHcolorado’s new Israel emissary, is a petite, dark-eyed woman whose graciousness mirrors the communal warmth that has embraced her from day one. “Would you like anything to drink? Are you sure? Nothing?”
The 35-year-old shlicha smilingly shrugs off defeat, clears off the circular table in her office and relaxes. Like a hummingbird, she darts from professional to personal questions with complete candor.
Fox arrived in Denver this summer with her husband Shalom and their sons Shahar, 7, Sagi, 5, and Yogev, 2. She describes her new role as “very exciting, challenging and amazing since the beginning.”
