Israel Engagement Chair
Yael Simon, originally from Saint Louis, Missouri, spent the summer of 2017 as a coordinator at Neve Michael Children's Village. Since then, Yael has made Neve Michael her second home, visiting every other Shabbat and taking advantage of any opportunity to see her campers. Yael, along with Ilan Ramras, co-runs the Kol Hanearim Yeshiva/Gap Year Student Program which helps to enhance relationships between summer volunteers and KH Kids throughout the year. Yael favorite hobby is listening to her KH Campers play their instruments! A fun fact about Yael is that she's an unapologetic chocoholic. Yael currently serves in the IDF as a weapons instructor for infantry soldiers.
