Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thank you for making the Israel Air Force a part of your life and for enabling me to make it a part of mine.
With great pride, I have accepted the position of Chief Operating Officer of the Israel Air Force Center Foundation. It is rare in life to be presented with an opportunity that’s a perfect fit. Let me tell you why.
My brother Opher, has been a proud IAF fighter pilot for over 30 years and serves in the reserves to this day.
Born and raised in Jerusalem, I served as a second lieutenant in the elite IDF intelligence unit 8200, overseeing 950 soldiers. I received my BA in psychology from UCLA, and a Master's Degrees in Education and Hebrew Letters. I’m also an ordained rabbi, and for the past 15 years I've worked as a rabbi and rabbi/educator at various Los Angeles temples and day schools.
My aim, throughout my career, has been to provide adults and students with a deep, transformative connection to Israel and to build stronger Jewish identify. Now, promoting Israel and the Israel Air Force Center Foundation is the driving force in my life.
With your help, I plan to use my experience and enthusiasm to take our organization to the next level. I look forward to meeting with you and hearing about your innovative ideas.
My goal and objective is to travel around the US and Israel to meet with our donors
to ensure my personal connection to you and the advancement of our important mission. Feel free to email me if you would like to schedule a coffee meeting in your city at:
At the New York kickoff event in July, I had the pleasure of meeting some of you and beginning to outline our most important goals for the next three to five years. (You can read all about that event below.) We will be planning more gatherings for you and your friends.
I look forward to getting to know you and working together.
