Ilyse Wagner

Ilyse Wagner (she/her) currently serves as the District Chair of the Northern Pacific Region. She is also on the Executive Committee of her synagogue, Herzl-Ner Tamid on Mercer Island, Washington, where she is the Immediate Past President.

Judaism, and especially Conservative Judaism, has played a central role throughout Ilyse’s life. She attended Camp Ramah in Ojai, CA (where she met her husband), was an active leader in USY at both the chapter (Seattle Achim) and regional (Pinwheel) levels, a Hillel president during college (Boston University) and has served in many committee chair and board positions at her synagogue.

Ilyse works at The Pokemon Company International where she manages a team of program and project managers in the Technology Organization. And yes, it’s as cool a place to work as it sounds, and you’re likely to see various Pokemon in many of her Zoom backgrounds.

Ilyse lives in Bellevue, WA, with her husband of almost 30 years. They have two daughters and a son, Shaya, Risa, and Bailey, who are currently in high school and college. Their children have followed in Ilyse’s footsteps, attending Camp Ramah in Ojai, CA, holding leadership positions at USY at both the chapter and regional levels, and being active members of their college Hillels.
