Michael Reidler is the Founder and Chairman of Kol HaNearim. Michael grew up in Englewood, NJ and attended the Ramaz Upper School for his high school education. After graduating from NYU's Stern School of Business in 2014, Michael spent his first year out of college as a mergers & acquisitions investment banking analyst. After one year, Michael switched to become a long/short equity investor at Citadel, a hedge fund located in Midtown Manhattan, where he currently works full time. Twelve years ago, Michael volunteered at a children's home in Israel and over the course of that summer he created a dream to one day open up a summer program at every children's home in Israel and the world. He soon after founded Kol HaNearim, with the mission to provide love and care for every child at risk. This summer KH is starting to see some of that come to life as KH will be operating programs in two countries (Israel and Ukraine) serving over 2,000 Jewish children at risk. Michael's moonshot dream is to fill up multiple airports and a fleet of airplanes with volunteers from around the world to come to Israel and care for the most vulnerable members of our society: children at risk. He is often heard saying, "we have to not only experience Israel and Jewish life, but we have to be responsible for Israel and Jewish life."
