This is Chaim Levtov’s first summer on NCSY Kollel. After being a Madrich on NCSY Camp Sports in Baltimore, he wanted to teach and guide teenagers in our homeland in Israel. He hails from the glorious city of Great Neck, NY. He has a diverse background which starts off with four years in DRS high school, shana alef in KBY and most of shana bet in Netiv Aryeh in the old City of Jerusalem. He is currently a psychology major in Lander College for Men and hopes to pursue a career in psychology and mental health.
The four boys in Chaim’s Chaburah all come from diverse backgrounds and school settings throughout the New Jersey and New York area. This is Moishy Greenfield’s first summer on NCSY Kollel. He hails from Monsey and will be going into 11th grade in Heichal Hatorah. Next we have Ariel Haymov, who also has the pleasure of attending the Kollel for his first summer. He is from Woodmere and will be going into 11th grade this year in DRS. Thirdly, we have Shmuel Gopin, who has joined the Kollel for the first time. He lives in Bergenfield, NJ and will be attending 11th grade in Frisch this upcoming year. Last but not least, we have Zach Shapiro, who lives in Lawerence, NY and decided to join the Kollel for the first time. He will be entering 11th grade in Yeshivat MAY this upcoming year.
In addition to Chaburahs, Chaim is also running the “Sfardy Party” this summer on Kollel. This is a unique opportunity for all the campers with a rich Sfardy background to appreciate their Sfardy culture with great torah from R’ Ovadya Yosef zt”l, accompanied by great food and singing. It is definitely an experience never to forget!
