Israel Engagement Chair
Yael Simon, originally from Saint Louis, Missouri. Yael spent last summer (‘17) as a coordinator at Neve Michael Children's Village. Since the summer, Yael has made Neve Michael her second home, visiting every other Shabbat and taking advantage of any opportunity to see her kids. Yael, along with Ilan Ramras, co-runs KH Israel - allowing Gap-year students to continue and enhance their relationships with their kids and the homes throughout the year. Yael enjoys doing basically everything, and her favorite hobby of all is listening to her kids from NM play their instruments! A very fun fact about Yael Aviya Simon is that she's an unapologetic chocoholic. Yael currently serves in the IDF as a weapons instructor for infantry soldiers.
