Park Vista Community High School
Machon Maayan 2013-2015
Why did you choose to attend Machon Maayan?
I knew I wanted to move to Israel, but I wanted to do some sort of learning before–a gap year. My NCSY advisors told me about it and I thought, “Great! Torah, tiyulim, etc.” That’s why I decided to come!
Where are you now?
Now I live in Karnei Shamron, Israel. I am married with a baby.
Where is the coolest place that you went to for Shabbat as a student?
The coolest place that I went to Shabbat was Mitzepe Netofa. It’s a stunning yeshuv with breathtaking views. It’s very relaxed and you can really feel the life in Israel there.
What was your favorite tiyul/seminar?
My favorite tiyul was the Negev Tiyul—camping in the Machete Ramon and biking. I also loved going to Aish. I really loved anywhere we went where Tanach came alive.
