I started my professional career as a counselor and then became the director at the Hadasim boarding school with 500 students in a Jerusalem based youth village. I left after 10 satisfying years and began working for the Association of Community Centers in Israel. I have been the director of a community center in Herzliya and in Rosh Pina and since 2004 in Kfar Yona. I also lead groups of teens and army officers to Poland on Jewish heritage trips. I have an MBA from Derby University and an undergraduate degree in Physical Education from the Wingate Institute. I am 59 years old, married and have two children and two grandchildren.
