He has become a passionate supporter of the Arava Institute of Environmental Studies and believes firmly in its motto that Nature Knows No Boundaries. Together with the Institute’s groundbreaking environmental research and innovations, Lester draws inspiration from the Institute’s peacemaking mission and its commitment to dialogue, problem-solving and cross-border initiatives among the peoples of Middle East as the key to fostering trust and building pathways to peace in that troubled region. Lester is retired after a long career in public service as an attorney and General Counsel for the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. He lives with his wife in Lexington, Massachusetts and spends as much time as possible visiting his children and grandchildren, who live too far away.
