Kosta Mogilevych was born in the Former Soviet Union (FSU) with no connection to Jewish life or Israel. At age 16, he visited Israel on the NAALE program where he lived on Kibbutz Amir in the Upper Galilee. After his experiences on the kibbutz, things began to change, and Kosta grew to have a deeper understanding and appreciation for Israel. He went into the pre-army mechina program and eventually served Israel and the Jewish people admirably in the IDF, where he was in special unit serving as an extremely passionate spokesperson reaching out to Jews around the world. From his assimilated life in the FSU, Kosta has become an ardent champion of the concept of mifgash, a shared community of young Jews. Kosta completed a B.A. from Tel Aviv University in Psychology and Philosophy. He has extensive experience in a wide variety of areas, including community projects, arts, culinary arts, prevention of domestic violence, and online marketing.
