What’s your most epic travel experience?
I hiked and backpacked for a month in Shvil Yisrael (Israel’s National Hiking Trail). I hiked from the northern tip of the country all the way to Jerusalem. It was challenging but definitely an amazing experience! I saw beautiful nature, met interesting people, and had tons of fun.

Visiting New Zealand and Thailand!

Your most epic teaching moment:
The screams of pure joy, the hugging, and the jumping up and down of the Wrinkle in TIme cast after the first curtain call. It was a culmination of all their hard work, creativity, and support for each other to put on a wonderful performance. I’m excited to work with the cast and crew of Alice@Wonderland!

I love being a part the Yavneh community, where we embrace joy, celebrate together, and support each other during difficult times.
