advocate, Histadrut - Legal Department of the Histadrut Trade Union Division
I am a second year law student at Tel- Aviv University. The areas I find most interesting are constitutional law and ancient Hebrew law. I work for the Israeli cancer association as a coordinator and lecturer: I teach students of all ages about smoking hazards. I also train middle school students as representatives of the cancer association at their communities and schools. In the field of law, I have been teaching a one year law curriculum to a fifth grade class as part of a project that aims to introduce young students to the primary principles of law and living in a democratic country. I also volunteer at the courthouse, assisting people, who are unable to pay for legal assistance, through legal procedures. My volunteer work is done through The Israeli association for overcoming poverty. My studies followed a 4 year service as an officer at the Israeli airforce, at the operations sector, a fascinating job which allowed me to be involved in the most interesting operations, such as the POW exchange, humanitarian rescues, and routine security operations. During my service, I joined a Taglit-Birthright trip as an officer and became committed to the program. As a child, I spent a year at Topeka, Kansas, a town with a small Jewish community. Taglit connected me, once again, to Jewish communities outside of Israel. It helped me understand the importance of collaboration between young Jewish people all over the world, and Israel's role as a center for the Jewish nation. I eventually joined a UJC fundraising delegation for Taglit, and later became head of the Taglit-birthright Israeli alumni association. Simultaneously, I participated in CLI's first ROI120 summit. At high school, I majored in Music, which fulfills me with joy at all times. During my spare time I study French and like to bake. My recent source of joy is learning to make praline chocolates with a specialist chocolatier.
